Nate Ganapathi

Respected whisky expert, critic, and collector Nate Ganapathi is one of the leading voices in the world of scotch and whisky and co-founder of Bevridge, an e-commerce and educational platform specializing in tastings of premium, high-end whiskies. Ganapathi has been a two-time judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.


Canadian Nate Ganapathi began in luxury retail sales and digital marketing, then later moved into finance. He first realized the investment potential of high-end premium whisky when he sold a bottle of $100 Macallan for $1,200, followed by a $300 Glenfiddich for $5,000. Nate became an investor and soon started making a name for himself traveling the world tasting and collecting rare and fine whiskies. In 2015, he founded the @SingleMaltDaily blog on Instagram for like-minded spirits fans. Nate partnered with fellow whisky connoisseurs and investors Chris Nelson and Liz Brusca in 2021 to create Bevridge, an e-commerce and spirits education platform that provides curated tasting collections, on-demand content, and large-scale tasting events, such as Whisky Live USA and Canada. Bevridge has been featured in Forbes, CNET, Thrillist, UPROXX, USA Today, and Whisky Magazine, among others.


Nate is a graduate of The University of British Columbia, where he received a bachelor of arts in political science and government.
