Joshua E. London

Wine & spirits writer, public speaker

Welcome. I write regularly on kosher wines and distilled spirits for The Jewish Week (NY), and periodically for other publications around the country. [For more than a decade I wrote a weekly booze-column for the Washington Jewish Week (DC area).] I am also a seasoned public speaker, and regularly talk about wines, kosher wines, and the world of distilled spirits. I also regularly lead tutored tastings.

If you would like to contact me for any reason, and especially if you wish to bring your wines and spirits products to my attention, please email me at [email protected] or [email protected]. Thank you.
