Ray Daniels – Beam Suntory American Whiskey National Brand Ambassador
Ray Daniel brings with him nearly two decades of experience behind the bar, from Europe to North America, where he is currently the Beam Suntory American Whiskey National Brand Ambassador to Canada. Hailing from Ireland, he has a huge and broad range of knowledge of whiskey, and the bourbon category in particular. With a long background in competitive bartending, Ray’s escapades have landed him in competitions and as a guest speaker and lecturer throughout Canada, Mexico, and the USA, and appearing in publications such as Whisky Magazine and The New York Times. Jam-packed with passion, humour, and a massive respect for the history of whiskey, Ray’s presentations have become a much sought-after affair. @raydanielwhiskey @mersoleilagency
