Dave Broom is a prolific drinks writer. Originally from Glasgow, Dave is living now at the south coast of England in Hove very close to Brighton. For over twenty years now he has been a freelance writer, focussing not only on whisky but also on other spirits.
So far he has written twelve books, two of which have won the Glenfiddich Drinks Book of The Year Award. His latest book Gin:The Manual is a user’s guide to the spirit, it’s history, production - and versatility. He is currently working on a companion volume dealing with rum.
When at home he enjoys sailing, hiking and rifling through the racks of second hand record stores
