Amanda Schuster is a freelance writer, particularly as Senior Editor in Chief of Alcohol Professor, and also a social media brand strategist for the drinks business. She is a certified sommelier, former retail spirits and wine buyer, food enthusiast, always a writer at heart. Her first taste of Scotch came at 2 when she accidentally sipped from her mother's glass (of what was likely a Talisker) at a dinner party and exclaimed, "Mmmmmm! Scotch juice!" After entering the drinks business and having the opportunity to taste many delicious whiskies, "Scotch juice" and all its international relatives became a driving passion and inspiration to share her knowledge. Furthermore, she thinks the worst thing to happen to whiskey is the Pickleback.
