About

The name says it all really. We’re a small team of spirit geeks based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Among other things we write about whisky, often in a strongly opinionated manner. If you’re looking for a simple news feed, we’re probably not the best choice. EWB provides commentary, we like to have a go at things we don’t like and invariably rave about things we love. All things in between we have very little time for. So if you’re looking for someone to suggest a nice bottle every now and again and to advise what to steer clear of, look no further. We’ll throw in a good measure of event news, bar reviews, interviews, photos of pretty girls and general shits and giggles to the mix to keep you amused.

If you’re super keen, we can say a few words about how the blog developed over the years (*sigh* you should really get a life). The first post went up on 12th January 2009 but the idea dates back to the year before. Initially there were only two of us – Chris and Lucas. We grafted away for nearly three years to take EWB from right obscurity to something at least 7 people have heard about. Late in 2011 we brought in three friends – Graeme, Tiger and Turbo – who assumed roles of ‘full-time’ editors to help the blog grow. As if by magic two became five. At the beginning of 2012 EWB received a thorough revamp to accommodate an ever growing amount and diversity of content. Although whisky is our primary focus, we are beginning to broaden our horizons by dabbling into other spirits as well as beer. After all, variety is the spice of life and all that.
