About Us

Hello! We are Laura & Nick. You may not know just by looking at us, but we like to drink. Don’t worry, I don’t mean that we’re raging alcoholics. We just really enjoy a good cocktail, a well-balanced craft beer, and even a shot of whatever local liquor we find while traveling the world.

In 2014, we started a travel blog that focuses on traveling for food. There’s no better way to discover the world than through food. And, of course, no good meal is complete without a glass of something to go with it. There’s no shortage of great drinks in the world. So we started Savored Sips as a way to explore and celebrate the diverse drinks we’ve come across.

It’s not all about alcohol. While there are vast amounts of beer, wine and liquor to discover in the world, the best drinks don’t stop there. We also talk about tea, coffee, soda, and even water! We are equal opportunity drinkers.

Who We Are

You may be wondering what makes us qualified for the job.

Laura has been traveling internationally for over 20 years and has been to somewhere around 50+ countries.  Nick has been to 30+ countries. Our passion for wine, craft beer and homebrewing has stoked our desire to travel to wine regions and learn more about craft beers around the world. Now, every where we travel, finding the unique drinks from that place is a top priority on our itinerary.

We been on pub crawls in Germany, cocktail tours in New Orleans, we’ve attended tea ceremonies in Japan, and traveled to over 15 countries for wine tasting. We even make our own homebrew. We’ve got enough personal experience to cover all of the topics related to drinks, and we’re excited to share it with you.

What We Do

These days, Laura works full time on our two blogs. She’s also been a writer and website editor for over 20 years and decided it was time to work for herself, for a chance. The blogs have become like little children, and Laura coddles them as if they are. Nick is a software developer for a large online retailer. He does all of the technical things that make this site run smoothly.

We live in London, having recently become expats from the United States. We travel extensively around Europe every chance we get. There’s no place we won’t travel for food and drink.
