“My most prized possession is a bottle of Springbank Scotch from the 1960s. Whisky is an important part of my family’s heritage, and my uncle Alec advised Springbank, the oldest independent family-owned distillery in Scotland, for many years before passing away in 2008. Alec was compensated for his time with bottles of scotch, most of them unmarked. The company still sends my uncle’s family bottles annually, and they find their way to me in Las Vegas. They gave me this bottle to celebrate the launch of my new startup, Wrytr.com.”
