Featured Employer – Love Drinks

Who is Love Drinks?

Founded by Kirsty Loveday in 2007, who received a British Empire Medal for high impact work in the drinks industry, Love Drinks is an independent import, distribution and marketing company for premium quality spirits, liqueurs and craft beers. The Love Drinks’ portfolio represents quality, craft-distilled and family-owned brands that have a rich provenance, heritage and history.

One of the pioneers within the drinks sector in the last decade, Love Drinks continues to showcase and grow some of the world’s most exciting spirit brands.  Putting long term growth, innovation and quality at the forefront of everything they do, Love Drinks represents a small, focused selection of brands that all share the same values.

How would you describe the culture at Love Drinks?

Love Drinks is a people orientated business made up of a dynamic team with exceptional product knowledge, interpersonal skills and most of all PASSION.

Love Drinks believe that a happy, motivated, and healthy work force is essential for any business to prosper and grow so offers a whole range of progressive work practices for staff such as monthly office massages, dog walking meetings, hula hooping and team fitness sessions.

Love Drinks also looks at the wider drinks industry to see how they can bring about positive change.  Last October the company set up the revolutionary Love Well initiative.  The aim of Love Well is to make the hospitality industry a healthier, happier place to work and encourage more people in the industry to put health and wellness on the agenda.  As part of the initiative, Love Drinks have run monthly free fitness sessions and wellness workshops for staff working in the hospitality.

What training and development opportunities are provided to employees?

At Love Drinks, the only ceiling to the opportunities for development is a person’s ambition.  The company is not interested in the people who are happy with mediocrity. They want people who want to be the best and who are determined to continuously improve to reach their goals.  The company has offered various options for training and development including WSET course, dynamic sales training and day courses with sales leader SBR consulting.

  • The chance to work with and help develop some of the world’s most exceptional, award- winning and unique drink brands in an exciting, fast-paced and innovative industry.
