Isabel Graham-Yooll

Auction Director

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.

James Gray

Brand Development Executive

Having spent almost every Summer in Scotland since he can remember, it comes as little surprise that James developed a keen interest in Whisky. After graduating from Stirling University in 2015 with a BSC in Business Management, he moved to London and spent 3 years working at Selfridges, learning the trade and building his knowledge of old and rare spirits. James joined the Whisky.Auction team in 2019.

Jeremy Lee

Auction Manager

Jeremy has worked in the wines and spirits industry since a chance Christmas job in Harrod's wine cellar in 1994 first fired his interest in rare bottles. Stints at Oddbins, Selfridges and Berry Brothers followed, along with international experience working for a variety of retailers and wineries in Australia and France. During seven years managing the wine and spirits shop at Harvey Nichols he further developed his interest in Scotch whisky - visiting no fewer than 19 distilleries in as many months - while walking most of Scotland's National Trails.

Roberto Nicchitta

Cellar Manager

Roberto was raised in Staines, just west of London, and began working in the drinks trade at 18 at Threshers. A talented musician, he completed a music degree in 2010. He then returned to London and spent three years with French wine merchant Nicolas, where he developed a love of wine and a keen interest in spirits. The Whisky Exchange was his next stop; here he discovered the world of old and rare spirits with a particular focus on whisky and Cognac. Roberto joined Whisky.Auction in 2016.
