It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John Hayston, formerly of Thierry’s Wine Services, Whitbread and MacFisheries.

Thierry's wine importers have been bought by an investment company

He learned his trade as a buyer at MacFisheries before joining Whitbread where he was instrumental in the development of bag in box brand Stowell’s of Chelsea.
