Owner and Brighton Celebrity - I'm the one who pays the bills, and generally gets told how cross and old fashioned I am. The phrase I mainly use is for f***s sake.
I like all good drinks, in large quantities, shared with nice people.
I run things at Butlers having taken control from my better half Mr Butler. I run on anxiety and vodka.
Butlers is in its fourth decade of retail and is a Brighton Institute run by our family of quirky and eclectic staff.
I am the person to go to if you need answers or help of any kind. I work closely with local restaurants and businesses on wine lists. Plus I'm a volunteer and trustee of The Crew Club Charity in Whitehawk.
I am also an Ambassador of Raystede Centre for animal welfare. These causes are very close to my heart. Henry and I use our exposure (and his celeb status) through our work and numerous events to raise money, awareness and opportunities for young people and families in the area, as well as various other charities throughout the year.
The sandy beaches and green moors of Cornwalls North Coast is where I call home although Brighton has effortlessly become my second home.
My background is in hospitality (every type you could possibly think of I’m sure I’ve given it a go)
I’ve been working specifically with wine for seven years but with Butlers only a few weeks and can’t wait to become a solid member of the team!
The freshest addition to the Butler’s team, as fresh as a glass of English sparkling on a hot summer’s day.
Currently working part time along studying Wine Business at Plumpton College, with an unhealthy addiction to premium wines… You could refer to me as the “perfect poor”.
Bringing some much needed queer energy to the wine industry (kidding.. wine is camp af). Originally from Cornwall, my background is in luxury hospitality. Finished my Wine Business degree at Plumpton a few years back and I have stuck around in Brighton specifically to ensure you get the wine of your dreams.
I've been working on & off at Butlers for almost 4 years - they just can't get rid of me. You'll find me most days in our Kemptown shop, come and say hello and we can chat about wine and music.
I'm the newest member of the Butlers team and am super excited to be part of such a fun, community-supporting business. After having my daughter, I worked for a charity in Brixton called Compliments of the House, a community-led food redistribution charity working to cut food waste.
I'm an ex plumpton wine student and have worked in wineries in New Zealand, Upstate New York and Rathfinny in Sussex. I previously managed a wine bar in London and also worked at Hennings Wine Merchants in Chichester.
I have a love for Portuguese wines and New World Pinot Noir.
You will find me mainly in the office and on the shop floor every once in a while.
Hi! I'm Sam, resident non-binary Chenin Blanc enthusiast. From just up the road in Lewes, I've spent the last few years in the production side of the industry. I studied at Plumpton College and have worked in wineries in New Zealand, California, Savoie and Henners here in Sussex.
I have many loves in the world of wine, generally leaning towards fresh and elegant styles although I do enjoy wilder things too! Alsace and the Loire Valley are definitely two areas of particular interest for me. Whether it's interesting production methods or unique single vineyards I always like to geek out over the little details in wine.
