Graeme was born in Dumfries and was brought up in Ayr, where he attended Belmont Academy. His passion for whisky was sparked whilst studying chemistry at the University of Glasgow, and working in Robbie's Whisky Merchants in Ayr. With almost ten years retail experience selling whisky and other specialist drinks, Graeme joined McTear's in December 2016. As the newest member of the Whisky & Wine Department, his passion for whisky is evident to all who meet him. He relishes the bustling and varied atmosphere and work of the department.
When not experiencing new and exotic spirits, he can usually be found playing five aside football, partaking in a spot of golf, or revisiting the entire Star Wars saga.
