Episode 004 – Timing: Simon Ford

In Episode 4 of the SSS, we’re going big with none other than industry legend, Simon Ford.  He’s one of the owners of the 86 Co.  who made his mark as a pioneering global brand ambassador for Plymouth Gin.  His timing and foresight was impeccable, as throughout the growth of the cocktail culture, you’d find Simon at the forefront, providing a platform and a means for some of the best educational events for some of the world’s most influential bartenders.  The ever so infamous “expense account” along with some great chat and pure skill and knowhow of his products and the craft helped Simon transcend the industry and spread the love of what we do to a large number of people.  Go to http://www.the86co.com for more information about their products and a lot of great, no-BS, product knowledge and descriptions on there.
