My name is Ben Reed and it was inevitable that I’d end up in the Drinks industry. I come from a
very close family and grew up in a party atmosphere where my parents, their friends and my
grandparents were always enjoying a drink or two…. or three at our house. One grandfather
was the manager of many pubs and nightclubs around the city, and over the years, I had an
insight into the hospitality industry without realising it.
In my teens and early 20’s I travelled and worked overseas, firstly in the South of France and later
In the Caribbean on the Island of St Maarten. I lived in St Maarten for five years, working for a
company called12 Metre Regatta and was racing ex Americas Cup yachts. It was here where I
really discovered the love of rum and that was quite the journey to bring me to where I am today. Click the link below to read more.
