Ludo Ducrocq is a worryingly busy man. As global brand ambassador for William Grant and Sons‘s range of blended whiskies he seems to spend a lot of time on the road – last week London, this week Monaco, next week China, the week after somewhere else that only his Blackberry knows. After having a chat with Becky, the ninja behind the @grantswhisky Twitter account, we started trying to sort out a time when I might meet up with Ludo – he ends up eating out a lot while travelling and tries to find people to help him punish his expense account rather than sitting in a restaurant on his own. After a number of false starts we managed to book a night a mere two months in advance – last Tuesday. After a couple of changes in plans we ended up arranging to meet in Albannach by Leicester Square, along with Jason and Darren of Whisky Squad fame.
