Richard Beeson, Whisk(e)y Ambassador

Richard has built a reputation as a spirits and beer expert in the restaurant and distribution industry over the past fifteen years. He has been involved in importing both Irish whiskey and Scotch whisky and expanding distribution of Kentucky Bourbon whiskey in the Northeast region. He started his career tending bar in the pubs of the Boston area and worked to cultivate a dedicated whisk(e)y selection and following as he has moved from the restaurant industry to distribution.

Your Whisk(e)y Ambassador for the tasting, Richard Beeson, has traveled to Ireland, Mexico, Germany, and throughout the US to study distillation and brewing. After making the switch from the restaurant industry to the distribution world in 2013, Richard worked with the new wave of Irish craft distillers to break into the US market, as well as Scotch whisk(e)y importers with unique bottlings, and small to large US distilleries looking to capitalize on what became a global boom.

In 2017 he opened his own small whisk(e)y pub in his hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts. The Keep boasts one of the largest and most diverse selections of whisk(e)y in the state. You can find Richard there most nights, finicking over new bottles and searching for the next interesting dram of what is known as “the water of life”.
