Truly dedicated to his cause as a luxury lifestyle ambassador, Ricky Crawford harbors an unparalleled devotion to and fondness for all the finer things in life, including the wonderful world of drinks, golf, cigars, fast cars, travel, yachts, fashion, adventure, nightlife, restaurants, celeb parties and, of course, Scotch Whisky. Born and raised in Paisley, Scotland, Crawford moved to the United States in 1991 with a scholarship from the University of Alabama Huntsville.
His heritage and love of the “water of life” opened doors to countless undertakings, which has led to many TV and radio show appearances including Fox News Network’s The Hannity Show, CW11 New York, BBC America, Bloomberg and TheStreet.com, as well as many magazines and trade publications including GQ, Esquire and Whisky Life Magazine.
In 2009, Crawford was awarded the “Certificate for Outstanding Contribution” by the James Beard Foundation. Ricky has hosted tasting events at the British Embassy in D.C. for the Scottish 1st Minister and the British Ambassador. In 2010, Crawford met with H.R.H. The Prince of Wales at the grand opening of the new Still House at The Glenlivet Distillery. A natural when working the crowds and in front of an audience, the affable Crawford feels honored that he is able to educate the greater public on life’s lavish indulgences.
