Whisky & Wisdom is a resource for whisky drinkers and enthusiasts worldwide.

Focussing chiefly (but not exclusively) on the whiskies of Scotland, some might call this site a whisky blog, but it’s so much more…

  • Feature articles & stories
  • Whisky editorials and opinion pieces
  • Humorous and entertaining whisky vignettes 
  • Distillery feature profiles 
  • Whisky “travel guides” and recommendations. 
  • Whisky news and reviews

Whisky & Wisdom is put together by yours truly – a long-time whisky writer, presenter, educator, distillery tour guide, tasting host, reviewer and…well…whisky tragic with 20 years’ industry experience and background.

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.  I curate, organise and lead bespoke whisky tours to Scotland for small groups of 10 every second or third year.  And I’m a Director of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Australia.    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 six 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 W&W on Twitter @whiskyandwisdom or on Instagram at whiskyandwisdom.  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.
