Tim Warrillow (pictured far left) teamed up with Charles Rolls to co-found tonic water producer Fever-Tree. The pair both disliked the artificial sweeteners that flavour many mixers so decided to launch their own premium tonic water operation.

Warrillow, Fever-Tree’s chief executive, has sold about £77m (US$99m) of stock and retains a £141m (US$182) stake.
