It is with regret that we inform you of the death of Ken Thomas. Ken was one our students many years ago and harnessed his infectious enthusiasm for Whisk(e)y to set up that gem of a spirits indie, Arkwright’s in Highworth. Ken had not been well for some time, but managed to survive the pandemic until sadly he died about a week ago. Fran his wife is hoping to reopen the shop in February. He has lectured for us, both on the Diploma but also to the wider membership too. Many members may have sought his advice or bought from him.
The funeral is on Wednesday 26th January. for more details click here:
