When Tom flew into Nigeria, it was with a lot of excitement and expectations. In the judgement of those who attended the Johnnie Walker annual society event at Ember Creek, Ikoyi that expectation was met and even surpassed.
You can call Tom the 'professor' of Scotch Whisky if you like.He is hugely knowledgeable in the field of scotch whisky, little wonder he was made the global brand ambassador for Johnnie Walker some years ago.He helped Whisky connoisseurs discover more about the super brand and world's number one selling blended whisky brand.
Tom told gistmaster that In West Africa, Nigeria remain one of the biggest market for scotch whisky and he was very glad to be in tune with those who enjoy the premium brand.
He told us that though he was in Nigeria for the first time, he felt really at hoome because he connected with a lot of people who are also big lovers of the Johnnie Walker brand.
At the event, Tom held everyone spellbound as he talked about the amazing the 200 year old histoy of the Johnnie Walker brand.Celebrities and high networth personalities at the event applauded him as he took them through a tasting and masterclass.
In his remark, the managing director of Guinness Nigeria Plc/Diego Brands, Mr. Delvin Hainsworth said " You know if you have made it in life, scotch is the drink of choice and when you have really made it Johnnie Walker is scotch whisky of choice"
The guests truly had a great time and experience as Tom was as engaging as ever. Tom hopes to be back in Nigeria soon to give more fascinating Johnnie Walker experiences.
