Our Whisky Shop Staff
ManagerAlex 'Bitter and Twisted' HuskinsonAfter working in various areas of the drinks industry for the past 20 years, Alex has amassed a significant knowledge of all wines and spirits, and is a fervent enthusiast of tequilas, rums, liqueurs, gins, bitters and the like. His love of whisky began about 6 years ago, and he's since extended his knowledge to cover virtually every distillery on the planet. In 2006, Alex also started running monthly "Cocktail Masterclasses" on behalf of Vinopolis, through which he shares his passion for the art mixing fine beverages.
Assistant ManagerChris 'Woodstock' BoltonNow the longest serving member of staff at our store in Vinopolis, Chris spent perhaps too much of his (spare) time at University working for the company. During the past 4 years he has developed an extraordinary knowledge of both whiskies and other spirits alike. Aside from his interest in malt whisky, he also has a love of classic cocktails. After a brief sojourn at our head office, Chris is now a full-time member of staff here in the shop, and as of 2011 he has also taken responsibility for organising all tasting events at TWE Vinopolis.
Assistant ManagerDuncan 'Dr Who?' RossA familiar face in the whisky world, Duncan's passion and love for whisky is unparalleled in the specialist whisky retail sector. His encyclopaedic knowledge of whisky is immense, having worked in various specialist outlets including World of Whiskies at Heathrow Airport, Milroys of Soho, and a further 5 years at Royal Mile Whiskies before joining our team here in August 2007. There is rarely a question about the nectar of life that he cannot answer.
Spiritual AdvisorToby 'The Lord' QuirkToby is the newest member of the team here at TWE Vinopolis. He has brought his youthful enthusiasm for drink to the shop and is now attempting the enviable job of catching up to the rest of the gang. He has come from a media background formerly working in marketing, PR and Television. It took a year long trip to Australia for him to discover his love of Whisky, being thrust behind the ‘proper’ drinks counter whilst working in a Sydney ‘Bottl-o’ called the Oak Barrel.
The other guyHector 'Dram theft auto' MilesHe comes in once a week and is noted for his buoyant temperament, vivid trousers and beautiful singing voice.
