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

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