About Us
Self-styled pioneering spirits of the industry, Quintessential Brands is one of the most exciting companies to emerge in the drinks industry in the last decade.  

With unrivaled distilling heritage dating back to 1761, Quintessential Brands Group was founded in 2011 and has since developed a diverse, award-winning portfolio of premium spirits brands, in addition to a world-class commercial spirits solutions business, working with retailers and business partners across the world to provide innovative spirits that meet today's consumers needs.

Quintessential Brands is present in markets across the world with commercial business units in the UK, Ireland, North America and Asia Pacific. The company is fast growing its presence in Global Travel Retail and in European and EMEA markets.

The company owns three distilleries around the world, each with their own specialty and reputation for excellence.

~ G&J Distillers has been distilling and bottling the highest quality gins and vodkas since 1761. To this day, it continues to produce spirits of the highest quality for customers around the world.

~ First Ireland Spirits produces and sells Irish Cream Liqueurs and Irish Country Creams across markets worldwide for some of the world’s largest retailers and drinks companies. It is Ireland’s leading independent producer of private label Irish cream liqueurs and also its leading producer of branded and private label Irish country cream.

~ L&L Spirits is one of France’s leading manufacturers of fine French spirits including fruit liqueurs, Armagnacs and Cognacs, in particular, the iconic Alizé range of fruit liqueur spirits.

In autumn 2018, the company's fourth distillery, the Dublin Liberties Distillery, will open, in the heart of the city's historic whiskey making district.

Revealed as Independent Spirit Company of the Year (UK) by Corporate Insider in the Business Excellence Awards 2018, Quintessential Brands recognises that its people, who all share the same pioneering, can-do attitude and values, are the key to its success. The team is dedicated to unlocking the vast potential the company is yet to fully realise in the industry and to making Quintessential Brands an even greater place to work. Today, Quintessential Brands'​ two co-founders remain active in the business with Warren Scott leading the team as CEO while Enzo Visone is Executive Chairman.
