Following on from our landmark 250th Tweet Tasting last week,
today I’m absolutely thrilled to be celebrating the 13th Anniversary of The
From what started as a hobby, to now what is the base of
a full-time career within the industry I love, I couldn’t be more grateful to

based endeavours since April 6th 2010.
Since day one, and not just for The Whisky Wire but for everything

inclusive and less stuffy.
For me, it’s never been about self-promotion but always
about the drink itself, and sharing it quite literally and in review and
information form with my readers and followers aka the Dram Fam.
In addition to the actual whisky, it’s fair to say that the two
things that make this industry special for me are its people and places. I’ve

Through my Tweet Tastings and other whisky based work, I’ve
also been fortunate to work with over 150 whisky, rum, gin, cognac and vodka brands. Not

So, if over the last 13 years you’ve ever read one of my reviews
or interviews at The Whisky Wire, taken part in one of my Tweet Tastings, visited
my The Whisky Business site, interacted with me on social media, or have
been one of my amazing clients, thank you for being part of the dramfotainment!
Tonight, I’ll be raising a glass of something suitably
celebratory to each and every one of you!
