James Shea


A whisky expert and former bartender at London’s members-only Soho Whisky Club, James has hosted more than 250 tastings in his career so far, ranging from two-person events to large corporate functions, private parties and everything in between.

Scottish by blood and educated on Speyside, he inherited his love for the spirit from his mother and grandmother. James’ favourite dram is Ben Wyvis 1972 27 year old The Final Resurrection, an incredibly rare bottling by Invergordon distillers.
