My name is Goos de Vries. I have been a passionate whisky fan for many years. It started with drinking a whisky every now and then and enjoying the smell and taste. After being invited by Johny Walker for a nosing & tasting and putting together my own blend, the enthusiasm only grew more. Together with my friend Hans Scheurwater we started organizing nosing & tastings ourselves. The passion for whisky increased and we decided to visit distilleries in Scotland. This turned out to be the way to learn more about the distilling and maturing of the whisky. Together we visited more than 60 distilleries. We have also been able to provide various nosing & tastings. Unfortunately, Hans passed away in 2015. Far too early and without the chance to realize the many more plans we had in the field of whisky. The name Anam Cara is therefore also a tribute to our friendship that was characterized by our shared passion for whisky.
