How did two entrepreneurs with no background in spirits go from making gin in their kitchen to winning multiple international awards and having one of the hottest selling premix cocktails of all time?
Friends and business partners, Tim Keenleyside and Denzil Wadds wanted to turn their passion for spirits into a full-time venture. During a ski retreat in Collingwood, they got the idea for their first product – Georgian Bay Gin®. It took 48 recipes and over a year to develop, but Georgian Bay Gin® was the first step on a long and exciting journey of growth. In 2016, Tim and Denny were joined by Mark Cohon, who has a passion for building great Canadian brands. Together, these three friends and business partners are on a mission to share their love of The Bay and great cocktails with the world.
