Regis was one of the best managers I have ever had! He is a true natural. He is kind, understanding and efficient manager that knows how to have fun! I would love to work with him again in the future.
Grace Allen Events Coordination Intern / Assistant Restaurant Operations Manager at MOSIMANN'S LIMITED 2018
I have known Regis for many years now, and he is one of the most professional and impressive experts in the whisky business. He is passionate about spirits drinks, has an enviable knowledge of a vast range of alcoholic beverages, and he is a talented educator and engaging presenter. He has few peers and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a presentable and amiable ambassador for their brands or establishment.

Régis a été mon responsable bar dans un Hôtel 4 étoiles à la Montagne aux Arcs 1800 durant plusieurs saisons ; Sans m'étende abusivement, Régis est un professionnel, fiable, courageux et très compétent ; Travailler à nouveau avec lui, OUI les yeux fermés.

J'ai eu le plaisir durant de nombreuses années de profiter du professionnalisme et de la disponibilité de Regis au Funky Claude's à Montreux. En tout temps, il cherchait à diversifier ses offres et à fidéliser ses clients tout en nous réservant un accueil chaleureux. Cher Regis, encore un immense merci et plein succès pour la suite de ta carrière.
Mathieu Quartier, Head of Managed IT Services chez Swisscom, 2018
J’ai découvert les richesses du whisky lors de dégustation organisé avec brio par Régis au Funky Claude’s bar du Fairmont Montreux Palace, suite à cela je n’ai plus jamais raté une dégustation ! Simon, l’accueil par Régis au Funky Claude’s Bar était toujours personnalisé et attentionné. C’était Lemaitre en la matière !
Mirko Manfredi, Product Manager, 2018

C’est à chaque fois un plaisir de retrouver Régis, préparation, précision, action, cela toujours rimant avec efficacité et bonne humeur !
François Cardinaux, Agent général d'assurances at Vaudoise Assurances 2018
Regis is the true officer and a gentleman. I lost count of the number of occasions he received friends and me as guests in his bar, or the number of tastings run by Regis which I attended, but what I do remember is his genuine welcome, impeccable professionalism and easy friendliness each and every time. Regis refers to himself as "whisky mad", which is an understatement: he is whisky bonkers?)) I used to think I knew a thing or two about whisky having been an avid consumer, collector and distillery tourer these last 15 years or so, but I'm a novice compared to Regis. I take take my hat off to this whisky GURU and recommend his whisky tastings and/or any bar or restaurant this guy runs to anybody: you won't be disappointed!
Adrian Bell, MD, Head of Agri-Commodities Trading and Execution, 2018
J'ai travaillé avec Régis à l'Hotel du Golf aux Arcs en tant que réceptionniste : j'ai été stupéfait par son professionnalisme comme bar manager et son accueil optimal de la clientèle, en costume cravate ou en kilt écossais. Je serai tout autant heureux de retravailler avec Régis que d'être son client !! Bravo Régis !!
Laurent Francis, Consultant Environnement Hydrogeologie Tourisme Durable. 2018
J'ai connu Régis au "Funky Claude" à Montreux. Il nous a toujours très bien accueillis dans cet endroit mythique, dont il a également animé la communauté des habitués en organisant tous types d’événements et d'animations via les réseaux sociaux.

Yves METZ, Président INGEROP 2018
Regis loves 2 things in life: Whisky, and….. Can’t remember the other one. He is one of the Whisky Categories best known characters and his love for the Spirit is emphasised by his presentations and organisation of events that educate and entertain at the same time.

Regis is extraordinary - full of energy, talent, charm and ambition. A great client and easy to work with.

Virgile Leyva Charles-Mangeon, Directeur Générale, 2018
When I first met Regis, he was here in Scotland explaining whisky to the Scots. Top class knowledge, top class customer service, top class communicator, top class entertainment. Fantastique en Ecosse, et superbe autour du monde je suis sûr.
Bruce Fummey, Stand-up comic and Scottish History Tour Guide. 2018
"Whisky tasting in Manchester. Very informative and kept us entertained. First time anyone has explained how to drink whisky in a way that's made me enjoy it. Great character and very informative, we were so surprised by the difference a drop of water makes! Very informative about whisky and I would recommend his services to prospective clients considering Scotland and a personal whisky introduction. I have already made contact and hope to use this service soon."
Theresa Ring, Business Tourism Executive, VisitScotland, Perth
"I have been to several tasting evenings and distillery tours, but have never met anyone that knows so much about whisky nor presented their knowledge with quite the warmth and humour as Regis. Entertaining, informative, helpful and professional, I have no hesitation in recommending him."
Bruce Fummey, Independent Entertainment Professional
"I hope you found your long journey from Edinburgh to Portsmouth worthwhile for our members certainly did. A highly informative and amusing delivery washed down by the excellence of your whisky was more than enough to ask for an encore. The adage that one "should add more water to it" to stay on the straight and narrow was dispelled as a myth and with the benefit of your instruction we will now be more cautious in how it is applied in future. Thank you for a most instructive and pleasant evening thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Warmest regards."
Paul Bolas, Commander, Royal Navy Club Secretary
"What you do is very different and what you do is not a normal tasting it's a performance. Even if you take away the whisky you are a very good speaker and very entertaining to listen to."
Jenny Cox, Proprietor, Loch Kinord Hotel, Dinnet
"Tanks for a superb evening everyone found it informative and entertaining, an excellent night! Your knowledge and enthusiasm was infectious and everyone came away inspired a really great introduction to whisky for the uninitiated and a fine range of whisky for the more wizened. Thanks again for what was the perfect whisky tasting event!"
Sarah Podmore-Mills, Geologist, Premier Oil Ple, Aberdeen
"This is a second time we've been using your knowledge and your amazing approach of whisky for French VIP groups. Our clients were impresses by the way you transmit this knowledge through a lot of humour and such a communicative energy and love of this product. For the two "shows" by Regis we've done it after a VIP lunch. In a relaxed atmosphere, our guests have rediscovered whisky. I"m sure anyone who goes for an appearance of Regis will never drink whisky the same way. Once again, thank you very much and see you next time!"
Florian Nayrolles, Event Manager, Sella Communication, France
"Thank you enough for the informative and entertaining whisky tasting and talk you gave to my friends and myself recently. Most of us thought we knew quite a lot about whisky but were amazed at the fantastic history and knowledge you have on the subject. The tastings from the Lowland Malts to the various products from the Highlan,ds were very enjoyable. The description of the various storage methods and your 'limited' use of water to bring out the various flavors certainly demonstrated to us a new way of appreciating whisky. Keeping the Islay ones to the end was certainly appreciated. My friends were impressed with the whole evening and I hope we did not keep you too long answering our questions. My sons who as you know were responsible for this event taking place join me in thanking you for an excellent evening. We wish you every success with your system of promoting our national drink. Yours sincerely."
Neil McKenzie, Strathaven, Scotland
"I have used Regis's skills for several years when entertaining VIP clients. He consistently delivers on quality service and style. One of the best in his industry."
Graeme W.Pook, Executive Golf & Leisure, Luxury Supplier
"Regis delivers a highly professional presentation and experience to our international clients who want to know more about whisky but in a fun and informative way."
Andrew Burnet, Owner, Andrew Burnet & Company Ltd, Event Management
"I have gotten to know Regis through the networking group business network Scotland of which we are both members. it was through this group that I asked Regis to volunteer his time and skills as one of Scotland's foremost whisky tasters to come along to an event in Tarbert to run a whisky tasting for the charity Seafarers UK. regis worked the very busy room brilliantly, bringing people over to the corner where his tastings were. There was much laughing and enlightenment for the tasters listening to Regis's informed views on the water of life. I would use him again without hesitation!"
Ewan Hastings, Experienced Charity Fundraising Manager
"I have seen Regis's performance for the first time at a networking meeting in Edinburgh. I was a bit curious what a French person would tell a group of Scots about whisky! Regis is very entertaining and most importantly very knowledgeable about whisky. Anybody would learn quite a few things about Scotch whisky during a tasting session and even if someone is not a whisky connoisseur, they might just change their mind after Regis adds that all important drop of water into their whisky! I hired Regis for one of my own client evenings and everybody enjoyed themselves and he produced a few converts who were not even contemplating having a whisky before! Very entertaining, highly recommended."
Nadin Dunnigan, Photograph, Bathgate
"I have attended a number of tastings with Regis and recommended him to provide our whisky tasting for Junior Chamber International's Scottish Conference. Every attendee thoroughly enjoyed the event. regis's inimitable style and breadth of knowledge mean I have no hesitation in recommending him."
