Hi! I’m Stuart and I am so happy you have joined me on my journey to find delicious alcohol alternatives.
I have previously worked for Majestic Wine, Laithwaite’s Wine and a local wine school. I particularly enjoyed teaching customers about great new drinks and organising fun tasting events. In my spare time I enjoy having drinks with friends and triathlon training.
I passed the WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits in February, which is the highest level qualification the WSET offer. I then decided to go on a bit of a health and fitness drive, to improve my sleep, so spent a month sampling various non-alcoholic drinks to discover whether I enjoyed them and to see their effects. Not only did I feel better – my sleep improved and I felt more energised – but I also enjoyed the tasting process and sampling all the different flavours. I felt this could be something that people who like beers, wines and sprits might also be interested in.
So, in March, I set up my own business, Drinks Academy. I review alcohol free beverages via YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. I will start doing alcohol free tasting events too – both virtual and in person, to corporate customers and to members of the public – from 22nd July. My mission is to make the world happier by helping people discover delicious and healthy alcohol free drinks.
Everyone is welcome here, drinkers and non-drinkers. I can’t wait to meet you all!
I would love to hear from you. Send me an email to email@example.com or get in touch via the contact page.
