Welcome to Whisky Ride

I guess the first question you might be asking is why I called the site Whisky Ride? Well, as a new relatively new whisky drinker I have rapidly become fascinated with learning the history of Whisky, the amazing brands and expressions created along with the community who love to collect and taste such a wide variety of flavours.

Speyside Cooperidge - Sitting by a pile of Whisky barrels

As with any new hobby, there is always going to be plenty to learn and I wanted to document my journey of discovery and take you, the reader, along with me for the ride!

A little bit about me…I grew up in Sussex and currently live in Leeds, West Yorkshire which is located in Northern England (and happens to be around 7 hours drive from the distilleries in Speyside!) I am happily married with 2 teenage sons. I have a regular 9-5 job in the digital arena working in a large agency in partnership with some fairly well-known brands.  I love to travel, spend time with my family and sometimes squeeze in 18 holes of golf when the weather permits. I look forward to the coming weeks and months as I get to explore more and more about the wonderful world of whisky.

I enjoy taking lots of pictures but I am still working on my photography skills so please excuse the generally amateur level images you will find across the site.
