About Me

I’m a Research Scientist at The Roslin Institute. My work involving biochemistry exposed me to various pure chemicals and solvents including phenols and alcohols. This experience coupled with keen interests in food & drink and the science behind how we perceive aroma and flavour have all contributed to my exploration of whisky.
