Robin, or Nancy to her colleagues at Beam Suntory, is unusual. She reins as the Portfolio Trade Engagement Manager. She earned her bartending chops back when drinks were blue and bartenders first aspired to be Tom Cruise, which led her to the role of Director of Operations for Bowery Street Enterprises, a restaurant group in Los Angeles. Opening eight venues over 5 years she learned the ropes from construction to day-to-day business.
In May 2011, the jewel in her crown was opening Rosewood Tavern, a scotch, steak & craft beer venue. There her recreational whisky drinking turned into a full-blown passion as Rosewood hand sold its way to becoming the top Auchentoshan account in California that year, bringing her to their attention.
Leaving LA for Chicago, drawn to city living and Midwest charm, three months before Morrison Bowmore expanded their Ambassador program was a lucky chance or perhaps fated. Having recently transitioned out of her role as National Ambassador for Auchentoshan Single Malt Whisky, to become Beam Suntory’s Portfolio Trade Engagement Manager, her passion is working with bartenders across the country.
When not on duty Robin works as her dog Lu's personal Instagramographer and enjoys listening to music on large plastic disks.
Robin likes to keep fit by walking and chewing gum at the same time.
