Meet the



Steve Bishop

Founder and Managing Director

Steve’s first recollection of his love for whisky and wine stems from his family holidays in Cannes growing up. With an early career in finance, Steve finally took the plunge and set up his own fine whisky & wine merchant back in 2012 with nothing more than a few cases of Bordeaux and a WSET Level 3 certification to his name.

Bringing honesty and integrity to the world of whisky cask collecting, over the past 10 years Steve has developed incredibly close relationships with some of Scotland’s finest distilleries.

While he is not exploring the highlands or Hebrides of Scotland, searching for that perfect dram, he can be found on the golf course or travelling the world with his family. Whether you are a self-proclaimed whisky connoisseur or are yet to start your journey, Steve believes everyone should have access to some of Scotland’s finest treasures.

Nick Greene

Executive Director

Nick joined Elite Wine and Whisky ltd in 2013 as an investment director. Having previously traded fine wine and being an avid wine collector, his knowledge and confidence provided him with the right tools to become an integral part of the team quickly. Nick also has a history of asset management and a brief spell in the city trading CFD’s. With qualifications in business and fine wine he naturally began to develop as a senior figure in the company and in 2016 he became managing partner. Day to day, Nick oversees purchases, operations and heads up the company’s global strategies. 

Outside of the office Nick can be found spending time with his wife and children. He is also a huge football fan supporting West Ham United.
