Hello and Welcome to Wandering Spirits Global!

Wandering Spirits Global is the home of Spirited Adventures . . .

. . . capturing the heart of beautiful distilleries,

. . . providing travel advice and touring tips,

. . . answering life's important questions, such as, how's it made? what are the differences? why do they taste the way they do?

Who 'We' Are

Wandering Spirits Global is the creation of Chief Wanderer, Amanda Reid. Amanda is an Australian born photographer, digital nomad and whisky lover.

Amanda left Australia in 2015 to travel the world. She visited Japan, then Ireland, and upon entering Scotland (the home of her ancestors) she fell in love with an Ileach (an Islay native) who just happened to work at a distillery.

Amanda and Roddy are currently in Australia, where they will continue to share their spirited adventures so fellow travellers can learn from their experiences.
