Foraging, survival, wild booze (infusing & brewing), beer and non-fiction writing consultancy

Andy Hamilton at arnos vale

I’ve been messing about with wild plants and fermenting things for many years; which means I can offer something unique to many different industries.

I’ve brewed award-winning beer, survived on a wild food diet, authored five books, worked with sensitive commercial information, entertained and informed sales forces from across the world, edited books, produced and directed short films and podcasts, presented on both live & recorded TV in front of millions and I’ve even acted in a feature film; but mostly I can be found experimenting with food and drink or plants.

If I sound like the fella you are after please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Email –, phone Tel: +44(0)7879 366 006. Any products or samples for review can be sent to my office address: Tanned Gent Offices, Unit 5.16 Bristol Hill, Paintworks, Bristol, BS4 3EH, UK.

I can deliver my expertise in a variety of ways, from panel discussions, telephone/email/skype/face to face consultation, foraging events, academies, public speaking events, workshops, podcasts, videos and one to one consultation.
