THOMAS - Store manager Tom is a real renaissance man. With his equal opportunities approach he's at ease in any setting: one moment he'll be hosting a high-end Bordeaux tasting; the next he'll be packing parcels alongside his team.

PHILIP - The utterly charming and knowledgable Phil fronts the store at the weekend and is an expert at two things: plastering a smile on your face and getting excellent wine in your car boot. Unfalteringly honest, Phil will let you in on our very best deals.

MARCEL - Gentle giant Marcel effortlessly co-ordinates the Glengarry logistical apparatus. With the mind of a supercomputer, Marcel will jigsaw across the city making timely corporate deliveries and make it back on time for a good peanut butter sandwich.

MEREDITH - Meredith's extensive history as a fine wine consultant and innate flair for occasion make her the go-to contact for your event and corporate needs, no matter the scale. That's why we call Meredith the GL - the Glengarry Legend!

DANIEL - Daniel's ideal evening involves dinner jackets and ball gowns, grower Champagne, vintage tawny port, red meat, vinyl records from ska and dub to new wave and post-punk, and a mandatory Withnail & I screening. He also works at Glengarry.

THEODORE - Despite his tender age, ex-bartender Theo is brimming with industry knowledge and will gladly assist you with recipe ideas for your next cocktail party. Both gentle and genteel, Theo honours his Sicilian roots with pizza, pasta, and quality booze.

KIM - Eric is a passionate wine and whisky enthusiast with a thorough understanding of winemaking. More secretively he is the don of Wellington's underground tasting circles, speaking French in candle-lit cellars and advising big spenders.

VIOLET - Violet is the queen of customer service and is the embodiment of service with a smile (and style!). After hours she unwinds by writing screenplays and enjoying the occasional gin.
