So we’ve sat down for our chat with David, now it’s the turn of Aaron, our co-founder, Sales Director, and self-appointed taster-in-chief! 

Aaron’s time in hospitality started at the Royal Automobile Club in Epsom, before heading off to university to study history (with a side of rugby and “spirit tasting”). This didn’t take him out of the kitchen entirely, and every summer he was back running events with David, until the two of them decided to get back into the office and launch The Tipsy Food Company.

After working hard to create our unique spirits range, Aaron took responsibility for the sales and marketing sides of the business. In practice this means he spends most of his time chatting to bars, restaurants and venues about stocking our iconic drinks offerings. He also oversees all of our Tipsy Events and the cocktail bar, so spends plenty of time coming up with new cocktail recipes. 

Outside of work, Aaron is a big sports fan, and spends most of his spare time following rugby, cricket and football.

Quickfire Questions

Favourite Tipsy drink? Our honey rum.

Cocktail of choice? Old school blackberry bramble, with our London Dry of course!

Ideal day off? Watching Fulham lose at Craven Cottage.

Most recognisable feature? Bright ginger hair. Apparently.

How would the team say about you? Makes a great brew.

Where can I find the bottles?


When we launched The Tipsy Food Company we were keen that it would give something back. We were thinking of ways we could do something meaningful and we were thinking about like minded charities, given we are all about liquid it seemed sensible to think about water. We are delighted to have partnered with Dig Deep, we are in awe of the work they do and really pleased that we can play our part.

By buying just one bottle of gin, you can provide a clean water tap to a school. For a child, this could mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing their full education.
