About Elizabeth Bell
Elizabeth Riley Bell has recently written a comprehensive book about single malt Scotch whisky, which extends to over 400 pages. It is the first comprehensive book written by an American on the subject and was released in 2012 with a second edition released in July 2014.
She is a consultant and authority on single malt Scotch and writes about single malts, the whisky industry, and Scotland’s distillery region as well as conducting tastings, Scotch dinners, and staff development sessions. Additionally, she works on blind tasting panels at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Edinburgh, evaluates single malts for magazine buying guides and works as a consultant for several whisky distributors. Her extensive travels in all the distillery regions in Scotland have allowed her to gain first-hand knowledge of the production of Scotch and new products and to establish professional contacts there, which included working a distillery run with the mashman and stillman at Speyburn Distillery.
In April 1996, she was the first woman and the first American to undergo training in the evaluation of whiskies at the Scotch Whisky Research Institute in Edinburgh and recently updated her skills while attending a refresher course in 2011. In April 2014, the Scotch Whisky Industry inducted her as a Keeper of the Quaich in recognition of her contribution to the culture, heritage and promotion of Scotch Whisky.
