Originally from the North Coast of Ireland Claire has spent the last 11 years living and working in Scotland. After graduating from Edinburgh Napier University in 2016 with a degree in events management, Claire has spent her career in Scotch Whisky tourism, moving home to join the exciting world of Irish whisky. She has worked in various roles in a busy and popular royal mile attraction and has been leading teams to exceptional customer standards ever since.
In her spare time Claire enjoys spending time with family, going for walks with her dog, playing Irish trad music and enjoying lovely days out with her husband. She is a keen whisky enthusiast and is excited to learn more about Irish whiskey.
As McConnells brings distilling back to Belfast it also brings Claire back home. ‘It is a privilege to be part of the team bringing distilling back to Belfast, and I can’t wait for everyone to come and experience what we have to offer. It’s going to be amazing!’
