A #what3whiskies update….

Just a small message to note that I will be taking a small break from #what3whiskies for a couple of months. As some of you may know I am studying for a degree with the Open University and I have a couple of exams coming up, and I will be dedicating more time to ensureContinue reading “A #what3whiskies update….”

Meet Andy Watts…

I first became aware of Andy Watts when he was invited to give the “Whisky Circus” a talk about his whisky work during the pandemic lockdowns. The opportunity to listen and talk to someone with so much experience will never be taken lightly. Since that day I have always had a bottle of Bains SingleContinue reading “Meet Andy Watts…”

Meet Dave Worthington…

Well, it is a bank holiday weekend, so I have your undivided attention (between chocolate eggs, Simnel Cake and of course a wee dram.). This weeks’ what3whiskies guest is Mr Dave Worthington. I will try not to take too much space here, but Dave (or Boutique-y Dave to many) has been very much a friendContinue reading “Meet Dave Worthington…”

Meet Amy Teasdale…..

This week, we get to meet a Brand Ambassador, who doesn’t seem to understand what “stand still” means!! If you follow Amy already on any social media channel, you’ll know she has been bouncing all over the place, chatting about whisky. Another person, who’s smile just brightens any room she’s in. Luckily, she found aContinue reading “Meet Amy Teasdale…..”

Meet Richard Foster

Richard is one of the busiest, most passionate whisky people I know. He is the founder of the Croydon Whisky Festival and English Whisky Festival and runs tastings locally in South London. So in a timely post (me? plan something? Don’t know what you mean…), please take five mins to meet Richard. Rich, tell myContinue reading “Meet Richard Foster”

Meet Dawn Davies…..

Well, this is a treat. This week #what3whiskies brings to you Dawn Davies. The fact I even managed to get Dawn to take five minutes to be involved is going on my list of lifetime achievements!! For those who don’t know Dawn, she can be found working for The Whisky Exchange as head buyer, butContinue reading “Meet Dawn Davies…..”

Meet Barry Chignell….

Barry is better known in the social media sphere as one half of “The Whiskey Chaps”. Over the last couple of years, he and his partner in crime, Mick, have created a great website full of whisky reviews and resources including maps of whisky shops and distilleries. They also have online tastings on twitter whereContinue reading “Meet Barry Chignell….”

Meet Tony “Pancakes”…

Ok, so it’s not really Tony “Pancakes”, but that’s how we know him on the “socials”. Anthony Dillon, will tell you below how he is involved in the industry (apart from asking for music recommendations for mashing time). I decided to publish Tony this week as I was in Birmingham yesterday for *Whisky Birmingham*, soContinue reading “Meet Tony “Pancakes”…”

Meet Bill Linnane…

Well, this should be a fun one. Bill describes himself as “Ireland’s Worst Journalist”, but I will leave that to you to decide for yourself. However my experience of Bill (limited to social media at this stage), is someone who engages with his fans*, enjoys a dram and has a wonderfully dry sense of humour.Continue reading “Meet Bill Linnane…”

Meet Libby Barmby…

I have met Libby a number of times over the last year at various whisky shows. Firstly with the Spirit of Yorkshire team, and now with The Glasgow Distillery. Generally I would hear her first, with laughter and banter coming from whichever stand she is working on. A joy to be around, and her personalityContinue reading “Meet Libby Barmby…”
