How to Change the Way The World Drinks

If someone sends you an email inviting you to change the way the world drinks, I bet there is no way you wouldn’t take up that challenge. Our guest did receive that exact email, and three years down the line, she has!

Claire Warner, co-founder of  Æcorn, the non-alcoholic range of aperitifs, was working hard at Belvedere Vodka when she answered that cri de guerre because its sender was Ben Branson who brought Seedlip into the world and created a whole new category of drinks – but you can catch his story on a previous episode. We are here to talk about Claire.

Claire’s climb from bartender to competition winner to global brand ambassador is best described as full-on and non-stop. But the more time she spent in the air, the more time spent in nature became an integral part of her life. When she received that email, Claire found she was about to experience being comfortable in the uncomfortable. 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • What Claire wanted to be when she grew up
  • Why nature means so much to Claire
  • How Æcorn came to be
  • How to make a great alcohol-free cocktail
  • How to make the Æcorn Clementine Spritz
