Speciality Spirits

Billy Abbott is a drinks writer specialising in whisky and beer. Once a computer programmer with more than a decade of experience working in the financial industry, in 2011 he made the jump to the drinks world, writing words instead of code.

By day he is a writer, trainer and ambassador for The Whisky Exchange. By night he is a freelance writer and drinks consultant, organiser of Whisky Squad – a London-based whisky-tasting group – and, when he finds time, writer of his own blog, Spirited Matters.
