Chris Losh


Chris Losh has been writing, whingeing, enthusing and fulminating about booze for nearly 25 years. In that time he’s written half a dozen books, edited multiple magazines and written for many others which, by his own reckoning, makes him responsible for the destruction of an area of rainforest the size of Hull. He’s was the editor of Imbibe since it started in 2007 until 2019. He likes gin, puppies and good wine, though not necessarily all at the same time, and is currently being divorced by his liver on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour.
