Kirker Greer expands global sales team
Ginato Gin owner Kirker Greer Spirits has named three new members of its global sales team.
James Harrigan, Quentin Jones and David Rose have joined the team to further develop on- and off-trade reach, and increase brand awareness of the company’s Kirker Greer Spirits portfolio.
John Soden, chief commercial officer of Drinksology Kirker Greer, commented: “We are delighted to be able to expand our already enthusiastic and dynamic sales team and to work towards increasing distribution and visibility of our brands, in particular in the UK, a market where we are already seeing great success.”
The three new faces have extensive experience in the beverage industry, having held previous positions with global drinks companies Proximo Spirits, Diageo and New Generation Wine.
“There are enormous growth opportunities for us and we are certain that our newer spirits brands will be very popular with consumers here as they have proved to be in other markets,” Soden added.
Drinksology Kirker Greer comprises two divisions: Kirker Greer Spirits, which owns and distributes a range of brands including Kirker Shamrock Whiskey, Ginato Italian Gin, and Jawbox Irish Gin, and a second division called Drinksology Creative, which specialises in design for alcohol brands.
Drinksology Creative has designed bars, brands, and brand homes including The Dead Rabbit, the Johnnie Walker Experience, and the Roe & Co Distillery in Dublin.
Kirker Greer’s Japanese spirits brand Ukiyo recently launched in Finland, after securing a permanent listing with drinks retailer Alko.
