meiotic   of or pertaining to meiosis,   both a scientific process (4-daughter cell division) as well as a literary device (to belittle with witty understatement). And hey, I like science and understated witty belittlement in equal measure (..also, there’s a more famous Phil Taylor to contend with). As you can see below, I like to open casks of 28yo Highland Park in my spare time – and I’ve spent my working life looking after the trees and water that make that possible.

I also speak at conferences about adapting the whisky industry to climate change. Feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in this, or any of my other scientific research:   talks@meiotic.co.uk
