Meet The Team


Yiorgos is the Managing Director of James Fox. Originally from Greece, Yiorgos is an avid cigar enthusiast that has drifted in the world of Irish Whiskey when he joined James Fox. Yiorgos' go-to cigar is a Partagas Serie D No.4, washed down with a glass of Teeling Brabazon, but he also appreciates cigars with some – or lots of – age.


Paul, our store manager, is also known as “The Nose”. He can identify the grape variety of a bottle of wine opened in St. Stephen’s Green, while standing in the shop on Grafton Street. When he's not daydreaming about owning a vineyard in Mallorca, he leans towards the dark side with a glass of Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or in one hand and a Trinidad Vigia in the other.


Kazik is always happy to impart his knowledge of fine cigars and premium whiskeys, and even happier when the aromas of both are wafting by his nose. He is a dedicated snuff taker and our in-house undisputed champion of snuff blind tasting. His favourite whiskey is none other than the 17-year-old Irishman.


Tim was born and raised in the shadows of the D.E. Williams distillery, the home of Tullamore Dew. A keen photographer, Tim can tell you how to grow your own tobacco and make your own potcheen, just don't ask him how he knows that! His drink of choice is Redbreast 12 Year Old, paired with a Ramon Allones Specially Selected.


Daniel is a seasoned mixed martial artist, and as such, he is a perfect fit for our complaints department. The one thing he enjoys more than a well-executed rear-naked choke is a glass of Tyrconnel 10 Year Old Port Finish, paired with a Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2.


Luana came to Dublin all the way from Bahia, Brazil’s finest tobacco growing region. Armed with passion for retail and customer service and an infectious smile, Luana is always happy to help you find your next favourite cigar & whiskey. Her own favourite – Fercullen 10 Year Old Single Grain, preferably paired with a Por Larranaga Petit Corona.


Aaron’s passion for whiskey has brought him through various whiskey-related roles before joining our team in James J. Fox. Although a fan of traditional pot stills, he always picks the wrong side in our Ireland vs Scotland domestic whiskey arguments. Aaron is a big fan of Islay peat monsters, with Octomore being his favourite, alongside a Bolivar Royal Corona.


Ewelina is in charge of the accounts in James Fox. Make no mistake, if your account is not up to date, she will come after you – without that lovely smile! Ewelina is a gin fanatic and Mór Irish Gin is her favourite, mixed with some premium Indian tonic water and fresh berries.


Pete usually stays in his dungeon office and takes care of the website, making sure that your online order is processed and shipped out as quickly as possible. If you contact us by email or via social media, he's the most likely person to get back to you – and you shouldn't wait long, he types over 70 words per minute! With all that writing, it's no surprise he's partial to a glass of Writers' Tears Double Oak.
