Jillian Boyd

Master Blender for Compass Box

Jill started working for a brilliant little whisky bar in Elgin, called The Drouthy Cobbler, where she learned the ropes about whisky, including that she actually loved whisky. She then moved to working as a laboratory analyst with William Grant and Sons in Dufftown where she ran the sensory panel for the three distilleries on site and helped manage the day-to-day distillery analysis. John Glaser heard many great things about Jill and asked her to join him and she has now been with Compass Box for two and a half years working as our whisky blender. Jill’s passion for whisky is contiguous and her overall knowledge is mind-blowing, she has a bright future ahead of her.
