About the Host: John Heffernan

John HeffernanJohn Heffernan has always been proud of his Celtic heritage and is eager to share his passion for that culture with others. “There is nothing more exciting than teaching people about my two loves: history and whisky, and being a Master of Whiskey allows me to do just that” he says. During his training to become a Master of Whisky for Diageo, Heffernan gained firsthand experience of the whisky-making processes across Scotland, Ireland and North America.

Heffernan served as a Diageo Whisky Ambassador for 12 years before accepting the title of Master of Whisky for the Washington DC area. He now educates bartenders, restaurant owners and consumers about the history and nuances that make up the world of Scotch, Irish, American and Canadian Whiskies.

Heffernan vividly remembers the moments that shaped his love of whisky. He says the most memorable was “trying my first chilled whisky at the Royal Lochnagar Distillery in 1998.” His favorite role as Master of Whisky is to help people discover their favorite whisky and really understand why they love it. “I always get excited to share this experience with others and see their faces turn from puzzled to enlightened,” says Heffernan.

When not sharing his passion for whisky with others, “Little John” enjoys catching a live music show with his fiancée Jennifer, a fellow whisky connoisseur.
