Founder and CEO, Ginmeister
What began as a way to indulge his favourite tipple has fast become the reason for Stephen Marsh’s business success. After deciding to stop drinking beer and wine, Stephen started to experiment at home-making various sloe gins.
He founded Ginmeister in 2013 and developed a unique raspberry flavour gin, Pinkster. The drink is available in more than 500 UK outlets and the business saw its turnover double between 2015 and 2016.
Ensuring that nothing goes to waste, the company now offers Boozy Berries and Gin Jam – using up the leftover raspberries used to flavour the gin.
Stephen believes that the heart of any successful business is a positive workplace culture: “Happy and fulfilled staff turn up on time and are willing to go the extra mile to meet customer and business demands.”
