James Portella

Portfolio Manager

Born in Italy but raised in Scotland, James grew up near the famous Scotch whisky distilleries of Deanston, Tullibardine, and Glen Turrett, sparking his curiosity about spirits.

This interest he leveraged into an earlier career managing sophisticated cocktail bars in Scotland, England and then in Australia.

With extensive experience working with luxury single malt brands including Macallan, Highland Park and Glenrothes, as well as high-net-worth clients, James brings with him a deep knowledge abut the drinks industry, and is perfectly placed within the Sales team at Whiskey & Wealth Club.
