"My palate has got better now that I have moved into spirits. I encourage all sommeliers to learn about spirits as much as I encourage all bartenders to learn about wine."
Dawn Davies is Head Buyer at The Whisky Exchange. Women in The Food Industry co-founder Mecca Ibrahim, caught up with Dawn to discover how she made the move from wine to whisky, and with over two decades of working in the drinks industry behind her, we learnt what she thinks of the trend towards low / no alcohol drinks.
Before The Whisky Exchange, Dawn was a sommelier in some of London’s top restaurants and also headed up Selfridge’s wine and spirits team. She also holds one of the most respected titles in the world of wine – Master of Wine which is now added to her impressive portfolio.
In the podcast, you will also discover how Dawn got into the drinks industry, her thoughts on the craft gin movement and whether she thinks there are gender differences in drinks!
