About

robin

I’m a multi-lingual food and drink writer with a WSET Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits. I am also a member of CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale). Previous careers include speech and language therapy, IT and insurance. My passion for food and drink began many years ago when I helped my father with his export business. I’m now turning my passion into writing and am currently a featured writer for The Alcohol Professor website.

This blog is a collection of random thoughts and ideas on food and drink. My main website contains reviews of specific food and drink products which companies have asked me to write for them, as well as reports on many trade events. In addition to The Alcohol Professor, examples of my published work include industry analyses of the UK Smoked Cheese and Biscuits markets, published in Speciality Food Magazine, May and June 2013, respectively. I also regularly review wine tastings and have had articles published on other websites, such as The Drinks Business and hostelbookers.

I hope the ideas you read about on these pages inspire you as much as they have inspired me and if you’re a food or drink producer or retailer and would also like me to review your products, please contact me at rob@thewritetaste.co.uk.
