Drinks writer, Educator, and Presenter in London, United Kingdom

Read my blog

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

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

Writing:
Whisky Quarterly
The Whisky Exchange Blog
Spirited Matters

Tastings and Training:
Whisky Squad
The Whisky Lounge
Distilled London
Wine and Spirits Educational Trust

Judging and Professional Organisations:
International Wine and Spirits Competition
American Distilling Institute
World Whiskies Awards
World Beer Awards
Independent Bottlers Challenge
Global Spirits Masters
Ginsmith Award
Circle of Wine Writers
