The brand’s co-founder Tim Warrillow (pictured left) is a newcomer to The Sunday Times Rich List with a net worth of £167m. Warrillow met with fellow Fever-Tree co-founder Charles Rolls after setting up the Business Development Consultancy, which identified opportunities in the premium food and drink sector. The pair launched Fever-Tree in 2004.

In July last year, Warrillow, who is the CEO of Fever-Tree, sold 1.5m shares in the business, but retains a 5.37% shareholding. Look out for Warrillow’s partner, Charles Rolls, later on in this list.
