Get in the Spirit!

Welcome to Travel Distilled, where two of the most enjoyable things in the world – travel and distilleries – get to meet. If you’re interested in travelling to distilleries, reading about spirits, or just sampling them, you’ll find something to read here.

I’ll be writing about distillery visits I’ve made, gin schools I’ve been to, spirits I’ve tasted, books I’ve read, people I’ve met – and anything and everything to do with the world of distilling.

Although I also publish a website devoted to vodka, The Vodka Guy, here I’ll be writing about all the different spirits I enjoy – not just vodka but gin, whiskey (and whisky), bourbon, rum, tequila and more, from wherever my travels happen to take me.

Take a look at some of my most recent postings below. Or read the About Me page to find out more about who’s behind Travel Distilled.
