My name is Gordon Atkinson, and I’ve been drinking whiskey seriously and intentionally for the last few years. I became fascinated by the ancient history and alchemical traditions behind this beverage the old ones called, “The Water of Life.”

That led me to formal training in the history and various traditions of whiskey distilling around the world. I am currently a certified level two sommelier.

I love introducing people to whiskey, especially beginners. My tastings are meant to be fun and informative as I guide you through the powerful experience that whiskey can give to us.
