Andrew Weir, brand leader for Aberlour Distillery, discusses the rise of whiskey as a go-to spirit around the world. He also explains Scotland's annual celebration of the poet Robert Burns.

Weir explains Burns Night honors Scotland's national poet Robert Burns, whose most famous work is likely "Auld Lang Syne." He reveals the poet has also influenced contemporary artists such as Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson.

Whiskey revenue has increased across the globe thanks to younger consumers being "less naive," according to Weir. He says they're more willing to spend money on a nice drink.
