2020 saw Waterford founder and CEO Mark Reynier reach 40 years in the drinks industry – 20 years in wine, and 20 years in spirits.
A maverick entrepreneur who has done perhaps more than any other figure to apply the rigours of terroir to the spirits world, he began his career in the London wine trade in 1980, formed La Réserve – one of London's premier wine & spirit merchants – before resurrecting the mothballed Bruichladdich Distillery at the end of 2000.
After introducing pioneering cask finishing policies that went on to change the whisky industry’s approach, and launching The Botanist, one of the world's best-selling gins, Bruichladdich was sold to Rémy Cointreau for £58 million in 2012.
Reynier then bought the former Guinness brewery in Waterford in 2014 – transforming a state-of-the-art brewery into a modern distillery, and in July 2018 commenced building the game-changing US$30 million Renegade Rum Distillery in Grenada.
