I was wondering if we could try and provide a list of the various Brand Ambassadors and their brands both globally and nationally... it could be useful when we have specific brand related questions methinks.
Let me start:
Tanqueray (global) - Angus Winchester
Hendrick's (global) - Xavier Padovani
Plymouth (USA) - Simon Ford
Don Julio (global) - Brian Van Flandern
Sagatiba (global) - John Gakkuru
you get the idea...
There are loads and loads hence the open question... who do you know?
La Clandestine Absinthe (Global) - Alan Moss
Beefeater Gin (UK & US) - Dan Warner
Chivas Regal (global) - Max Warner
Hendrick's Gin (UK) - Louis Lewis-Smith
Sagatiba (USA) - Jamie Terrell
Sagatiba (Germany) - Sven Rhese
Belvedere (global) - Claire Smith
Belvedere (Asia) - Sam Jeveons
Arette Tequila (UK) - Alex Fitzsimons
Grey Goose (global) - Dimitri Lezinska
42 Below (global) - Jacob Briars
42 Below (UK) - Martin Newell
Right Gin/Ocho Tequila (USA) - Gregor de Gruyther
Santa Teresa Rum/Whitley Neil Gin (UK) - Jim Wrigley
........and so on and so forth!
We should reach out to all of those folks and get them registered on the forum as well as joined to this group... that's one way to keep track of them! :->
Recently I had en enquiry about Malibu in the UK, and got a reply from:

This looks like GREAT information to capture, and perhaps in a slightly more readable format. Since the individual "groups" also have their own "Wiki" section, I thought this would be a great way to start the Wiki section off for this group, so I've taken all of the above information and reformatted into this document.
There is some more.
Grey Goose France - Stanilas Jouenne
Belvedere Vodka Australia - Grant Collins
International Brand Ambassador Marie brizzard / Belvedere group - Nicolas Destors
Belvedere Vodka France Representative / Ugo jobin
Mixology is an Art,
Please treat it with respect !
Thanks! I've added those ot the wiki page for this.
