About hometipple

Mikey – Founder & Managing Director
mikey meet the team

Wine lover, cocktail fanatic and all-round booze hound. Having retrained a number of years ago by taking (many) exams at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), he thought it would be a good idea to get a couple of good mates together and start hometipple.

Having spent time working for wholesalers, distributors, producers, retailers and e-tailers, everything he’s done in his booze career to date has led him to this point… It’s basically his calling.

When he’s not compiling yet another snazzily coloured spreadsheet, he can be found walking his beloved French Bulldog, Shelby, cocktail-bar-hopping or seeking out the ultimate hot cross bun. Check out some of Mikey’s favourite bottle below.

Nick – Head of  Sales & Operations
nick meet the team

A trained and experienced booze-monger with a degree in winemaking. Nick has made wine, beer, gin and mead all over the world. From Australia to Argentina, Germany to Croatia, California to Peckham, his impressive CV reads more like a Lonely Planet guide than a resumé.

An experienced bartender with an impressive knowledge of cocktails and how to make them way more complicated than necessary, his taste buds are incredibly well trained and wonderfully picky.

An impressive home cook, Nick loves nothing more than spending time on the beach, barbecuing that day’s catch whilst sipping a sea-chilled glass of Riesling. Discover a few of Nick’s favourite drinks below.

Andrew – Head of Finance & Technology
andrew meet the team

Unlike Nick and Mikey, Andrew considers himself an enthusiastic booze layman.  With a background of 10 years in financial and business analysis, Andrew most recently ran a consultancy practice, helping start-ups develop and realise growth.

With a love for numbers and data, Andrew is responsible for managing company finances and developing the business’s technology platform, the black box behind hometipple’s insightful product pairings and customer recommendations.

Having recently relocated from London back to his native Edinburgh, Andrew has rediscovered a love for golf. When he’s not braving the Scottish climate, Andrew enjoys sampling the many fine bars the city has to offer in search of the perfect whisky sour. Check out some of Andrew’s favourite bottles below.
