"Ricky" showed up with a casual yet camera-ready demeanor that most of us here in Los Angeles have yet to achieve. My challenge, if I was able to keep up, was to join Edwards, who works with The Glenlivet, and Richard Varga, Chivas Regal Senior Brand Ambassador, both Masters of Scotch, in their after-work escapades to get to the bottom of the long running question: What do these guys do when they aren't on the clock? After Hours Master of Scotch Rick Edwards was recently given the Icons of Whisky Scotch Whisky Ambassador of the Year Award. With impassioned and enthusiastic "shop talk," Edwards and Varga prove there is no such thing as being "off the clock."
