A favour for flavour, dedicated to the delivery of history, telling tall tales of juniper journeys.

Spirits Writer and Judge with five years experience in the industry. Specialising in gin, but casting the net wider nowadays as all spirits are beautiful.

Telling the tales of distillery, story, producer and product. Judging quality, category and components of a great libation.

Hands on at events, conferences, masterclasses, tastings.

Also behind the scenes with admin, orchestration, organisation. If it’s spirits, I’m in.
