VC Services is the name of the business, but our greatest asset is Vic.
Vic Cameron, after 23 years experience with Diageo (in a wide variety of roles), left to become a church minister, but also to start his own consultancy business. He is now in his 9th year of running his own consultancy firm, and recently completed his 30th anniversary of working in the whisky industry.
Vic was fortunate enough to gain vast experience with Diageo, and built up a superb network of contacts and colleagues through the years, and is continuing to widen this network as his own business grows and develops.
The Educator Guy
Vic is recognised as one of the best whisky "educators" in the business, being Whisky Lecturer for the University of the Highlands and Islands and Senior Teacher for Edinburgh Whisky Academy. He was also "Headmaster" for the Whisky School at the WFNN and was on the organising committee for the prestigious Spirit of Speyside Whisky School. Vic is also happy to lead you in tutored whisky nosing and tasting sessions in your home or business.
Vic has also recently started providing teaching and coaching for individuals and groups sitting the IBD GCD examination, and is also happy to prepare and deliver bespoke courses.
