Isabel has been working in the wine and spirits industry for almost 20 years[!] It began with a part time temporary job at Oddbins: a year later she was still there and had tasted every wine and spirit they had. Since then Isabel has managed the wine department at Selfridges, been associate director at Jeroboams Wine Merchants, whisky buyer at Milroy's of Soho and head of spirits at BI Wines & Spirits. Now at Whisky.Auction, Isabel expects to remain in the industry for at least another 20 years.
