Crossjoins from Bacardi Martini, where she gained over five years’ brand management experience across a portfolio of brands within the group. 

Dougal Sharp, managing director at Innis & Gunn, said: “We’re a young business with big growth ambitions and Lucy ticked all the right boxes in what we were looking for in a marketing manager.”

Innis & Gunn has three core products in its range: Original, Blonde and Rum Cask, as well as a number of limited edition beers. It is available in seven countries: the UK, US, Canada, Sweden, Ireland, Finland and Norway.
