Billy Abbott is a London-based drinks writer with a focus on whisky, fine spirits and beer. Formerly a computer programmer in the finance industry, he jumped into the world of writing full time in 2011.
By day, Billy works for The Whisky Exchange, writing, blogging, managing online communities, leading the internal training program and acting as the company’s whisky ambassador. The rest of the time, he writes freelance, blogs at Spirited Matters and elsewhere, judges beer and spirits competitions, and organises and hosts drinks events around the world.
Billy also has a WSET Level Two Spirits qualification and will shortly be making use of it by becoming a WSET Certifed Spirits Educator. In the remaining hours of the day, he runs a London-based whisky tasting club – Whisky Squad.
We look forward to sharing Billy’s updates and features in The Circular!
