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.
After finishing university Emma quickly moved into working in events. She has spent the last 15 years organising everything from corporate events to high-end weddings and, more recently, large drinks shows like The Whisky Show and Rum Fest. She has been part of the The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show team since its first year and has been key in growing it into the biggest and best drinks event in the UK.
Born to a father in the wine trade, Leonora was introduced to the drinks industry at an early age and spent many a half term wondering around the vineyards of the Mosel Valley. She then carried on the family tradition moving into the world of drinks PR before joining The Whisky Exchange at the beginning of 2017 to immerse herself in the world of whisky.
