Andy's family are from Speyside and he was introduced to whisky at an early age – his first distillery trip was at the age of five. After a degree in music, he worked for bars and wine merchants before starting to organise drinks events for Laithwaite's – everything from setting up wine bars at cricket matches to organising parties with Classic FM and hosting private tastings.
He's worked behind the scenes at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show since 2010, and came on board full-time in 2013. He now manages the event, and with the move to Old Billingsgate in 2015, is leading it to a bright future.
