Sammy Karachi, Edrington Brand Ambassador–New England

Sammy Karachi is proud to represent the Edrington portfolio in his native New England. He has over fifteen years of experience in the food and beverage industry, starting as a cook in a small country club down the street from his alma mater, Boston College. In the years following graduation, his interest in craft cocktails and natural wine led him to work for some of the most innovative restaurants in the Greater Boston Area. After those long nights of mixing drinks, Karachi would often find comfort in a glass of The Macallan. His passion for single malt scotch is limited only by the brilliance and creativity of the whiskies he represents—and the shelves of his bar at home. Ask him anything about distillation history, wood sourcing, cocktail etymology, terroir in whisky, and more! He can be reached at [email protected].
