About the Author

Tom Bruce-Gardyne has been writing on wine for almost 20 years and has twice won the Louis Roederer 'Drinks Writer of the Year' Award. A regular contributor to magazines such as The Drinks Business and for years a weekly columnist on the Herald newspaper, his books include Scotch Whisky Treasures. And though his tastes in drink are suitably broad, he has always had a weakness for the mood-enhancing bundle of joy that is champagne.
