Episode 189 Bryn Jones | How to Launch a Drinks Product
Bryn Jones joined Thames Valley Police in 1986 transferred to Northumbria Police end of 1988 and retired November 2014. During my time in the police he was involved in the International Police Association and elected to National Vice President in 2007. Therefore he met lots of other cops from around the world.
He created House Of Ruhr after a German police colleague told him he dreamed of seeing a drink made at his family distillery in the Ruhr Valley behind served in a bar in Newcastle. So, the dream is now fulfilled when he launched their own range of gins recently.
Ian & Bryn discuss;
- The story of House of Ruhr
- Problems with importing alcohol
- Beginning sales & marketing
- Being a retired cop
- The heritage of the gin
- Thoughts on launching new drink products
- Importance of networking and having connections
Ian live streamed (Facebook, YouTube & Twitter) for 2 hours on the 24th July 2020 and interviewed 3 speakers back to back!
We have edited those videos and created bonus podcast episodes.
