Whisky Ambassador


Jimmy Crowe, Whisky Ambassador

 Jimmy Crowe    

Jimmy is the eldest of four siblings, he has two younger brothers and a younger sister. His mother is a world class chef and his father is the descendant of renowned Irish stone masons and custom builders.  A master craftsmen himself, Jimmy’s father, James Crowe Sr. is also the inventor of the Authentic Roof product; the world’s first synthetic roofing slate made from all recycled thermo-polymers,  created just over 30 years ago (1988). Today, Jimmy is VP of Sales for this innovative manufacturing company that supplies the world’s most superior roofing material to all four corners of the globe.

Jimmy is a former valedictorian and a graduate of McMaster University. He considers himself to be a compassion cultivator as well as an information envoy. His interests are quite diverse and include many things from health, politics and business; to sports, martial arts and the great outdoors. Jimmy is also a proud Freemason and a Past Master of his lodge. He is highly active within both the York Rite and Scottish Rite branches of Masonry in Ontario. Although he may not look it, Irish and Scottish blood run thick through his veins; and as such, Jimmy also developed an affinity for the fine Celtic spirits many years ago. This passion ultimately lead him to pursue the “Whisky Ambassador” designation, the UK’s only accredited whisky training program.  In all endeavors his aim is to impart camaraderie, optimism and happiness. He wholeheartedly subscribes to the philosophy: live every moment, laugh everyday and love beyond words.
