Author: Sam Davies

Sam’s passion for spirits started at a very young age (he was 10) when he asked for a sip of the whisky in his father’s glass. That experience spurred a great curiosity that he nurtured through four years of restaurant school. After graduation, Sam honed his palate by managing, buying, and writing for some the best wine and spirit retail shops in New York City. He has traveled to visit distilleries around the world to soak up more knowledge (and tasty whiskies) along the way. Today, he finds himself at home at the prestigious Astor Wines & Spirits educating and helping people find whiskies they love.
