A FAVOUR FOR FLAVOUR, TELLING TALL TALES OF JUNIPER JOURNEYS…AND NOW OTHER SPIRITS TOO!
I’m a spirits writer, judge and consultant based on the South Coast, UK. I’ve been getting stuck into spirits for over seven years now and I love what I do.
Starting with gin, my interest in spirits is now spreading to all corners of the globe. Spirits are a delightful and creative thing to enjoy, and they satisfy the nerd in me with ever evolving processes and science. They also have an important place in our sociocultural history and teach us lessons of our human past. For me, it’s all about their story and science, pleasure and pastime, creativity and connection.
I write for publications such as Gin Magazine, Distiller Magazine and Spirits Magazine, I also work with clients such as the Craft Distilling Expo, to help organise a conference for distillers. I also judge at a variety of competitions.
I also offer paid content on my site and cannot wait to collaborate! For me, it’s all about connecting a reader to a spirit, person and place in the way the customer connects when you meet them face to face at an event. This is what I do best.
