Blog: Olly WehringMichael Jackson

Olly Wehring | 31 August 2007

It is with a heavy heart that I report to you the sad passing of one of the more exhuberant characters in the drinks journalism world, Michael Jackson.

Michael was an authority in both the beer and whisky sectors, and one of the most modest, un-self-aware drinks journalist there ever was.

Michael passed away yesterday morning at home. He was 65.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.
