Ryan Rhodes, Twin River’s Brand Director, holds many years’ experience in the global drinks trade and, in September 2017, was a finalist in the World Flor De Cana Rum finals in Nicaragua. As well as a master mixologist, Ryan has other extensive experience in the trade having worked as far afield as Singapore for two years where he supported with the regeneration one of the cities’ most popular bars.
He is passionate about provenance and educating consumers about the importance of true Scottish provenance in the craft spirits industry and uses a hand on approach in the development of flavour concepts. Ryan has been tasked with heading up the brand in major Scottish cities and beyond.
Ryan masterclass will begin with a brief history of gin, distillation and modern production when he’ll discuss what separates distilled gin and rectified gin and explain exactly what gin provenance is. He’ll talk through Twin River’s production and the grains, spirit and the botanicals used to create the
team’s Naked Gin.
