Billy Abbott

Drinks Writer in London, United Kingdom

Read my blog

I'm a drinks writer with a whisky obsession and a desk covered with too many Lego minifigs.

I work at The Whisky Exchange during the day, writing words about all kinds of alcoholic drink. I write more of them at night for fun and profit, as well as running tastings, and occasionally doing a bit of drinks consulting and competition judging. You can find some of these things in the following places:

Whisky Quarterly
The Whisky Exchange Blog
Spirited Matters

Whisky Squad
The Whisky Lounge
Distilled London

International Wine and Spirits Competition
World Whiskies Awards
American Distilling Institute
Independent Bottlers Challenge
Global Spirits Masters
Ginsmith Award
