So who and what is Whisky & Wisdom?

I’m a long-time whisky writer, presenter, educator, distillery tour guide, tasting host, reviewer and…well…whisky tragic.  I’m also a Director of the Australian branch of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, and it would be fair to say that a chunk of my involvement in the whisky industry is with or via the SMWS.  But that’s not what this site is about…

I wear quite a few other hats in the whisky industry and community – and I’m usually wearing more than one hat at once!  I freelance as a whisky presenter/ambassador for most of the big brands (and the little ones, too!); I’ve written for Whisky Magazine in the UK, Tumbler Magazine, Australian Gourmet Traveller,  Unfiltered Magazine, the Sydney Morning Herald, and numerous other printed media, plus countless online/digital publications.  And I’ve curated, organised and led many whisky tours to Scotland for small groups of 10 every two or three years.  This website is a combination of all my whisky wisdom & activities – Opinions, Feature Articles, Wisdom, News, Reviews and Fun.

To find specific articles or subjects more easily, search under the five different Categories, as listed on the right.  (A wee tip:  Most of the articles – and certainly the most popular and widely distributed ones – reside in “Wisdom & Opinions”).

Views expressed here are entirely my own.   You can also follow me on Twitter @whiskyandwisdom or on Instagram at whiskyandwisdom.  My alter ego also tweets with the handle @SMWS_Australia for The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.  And you can also check out the Whisky and Wisdom Facebook page which features the popular “Pic for the day” photos of Scotland and its distilleries.

You can read all of Whisky & Wisdom’s posts and articles here or access all the features on the menu above and the sidebar links to the right.
