Our CEO, Christa Cotton, wins 2020 Les Dames D'escoffier legacy award for fine spirits
It’s welcome news during a weird & worrisome time in American small business. As part of the award, she’ll spend a week split between Guadalajara & Tequila, Mexico with Dame Araceli Ramos, Director of PR for Jose Cuervo. Half her time will be spent in their agave fields & distillery learning about agave farming & harvesting, tequila distillation & sustainability practices while the other half will be spent in the office with their leadership team learning about worldwide marketing, promotions & public relations within the fine spirits industry. It’s unlikely she’ll be traveling before Fall because of the current situation but regardless, it’s an incredible learning opportunity & we now have something to look forward to when the chaos subsides. We are so grateful to Les Dames d’Escoffier International for honoring her, Jose Cuervo for hosting the trip & The Julia Child Foundation for sponsoring the award.
