Eight Lands – the award-winning organic spirits brand from Speyside – has made a further addition to the brand’s expanding team, with Josh Rosenbaum joining as Brand Development Manager. Josh is responsible for building lasting relationships with on- and off-trade partners and growing the brand nationally and in key export markets.
Josh joins the growing team from Amathus Drinks, where he led a team, as well as looked after national group accounts and London on-trade accounts. Prior to that, Josh spent a number of years working in the hospitality and drinks sector in the UK and around the US, including Boston and Las Vegas, as well as a period of time in Dublin.
Josh said: “I am incredibly excited about being part of the Eight Lands team for the simple reason that it’s a fantastic product with a great story. Glenrinnes Distillery – the home of Eight Lands – is producing a beautiful product with both its gin and vodka, which Alex, Meeghan and the team have done an exceptional job with. I’m delighted to have joined at such an exciting time for the brand.”
Alex Christou, Founder of Eight Lands and Glenrinnes Distillery, said: “It’s fantastic that we are continuing to expand the Eight Lands team to include so much expertise and talent from across the industry. Josh brings an exciting dynamic to the team having worked in both sales and the on-trade directly. We remain extremely ambitious for the brand and believe putting the right talent in the right positions within the business will not only help us grow, but also enable us to be resilient in changing and challenging times.”
Josh’s recruitment comes just three months after Matt Chambers joined the Eight Lands team as UK Brand Ambassador – Off-Trade in May 2020.
