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 is leading it to a right future with the recent addition of The Whisky Show Old & Rare and The Cognac Show.

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 further in the world of spirits.
