My name is Martin Armstrong. I am 26 and have graduated with a Masters in Civil Engineering from Queen’s University Belfast in 2010. I declined the opportunity to take up a job in finance (which I may live to regret!), instead choosing to use the remainder of my student loan, plus a little more, to buy casks of whisky.
I learned to drive the forklift truck at Bladnoch Distillery when I was about ten years old. Since then, I’ve been involved in most aspects of work at the distillery, although I now focus almost entirely on cask sales & bottling. Whiskybroker.co.uk was established in October 2010.
I got married on the 21st May 2011 to Jane who now works for the company, as well as looking after our two boys Harry (born Sep 2012) and Andrew (born May 2014).
