Brian Morrison has joined premium drinks importer and distributor, Mangrove UK, in the newly created role of Channel Director. The appointment forms part of the company’s continued expansion, with a focus on wholesaler growth and national accounts, as well as food service and travel.

Prior to joining Team Purple, Brian was Sales Director for Double Dutch, as well as enjoying roles with Gu Puds, Hildon Water, SHS Group, Britvic and Mars Drinks. In this new role, Brian will promote Mangrove’s extensive spirits portfolio to new commercial audiences, bringing their quality, heritage and provenance to life. He will develop joint business growth plans with national accounts, anticipate and target gaps in the market and support Mangrove’s ongoing commercial growth in collaboration with the rest of the senior team.

Brian commented:

“I’m ready to go to the moon with Mangrove! They have such a strong portfolio of premium brands which not only taste amazing, but also each have their own unique backstory, not to mention a huge focus on sustainability. It’s great to be amongst a team of really passionate spirits experts, who know their trade inside out. I’ve had a very warm welcome to Team Purple.”

Nick Gillett, Managing Director, said:

“Bringing Brian into the team was a very easy decision. I’ve followed his career and loved his contribution to growing Double Dutch over the last three years. Brian is a prominent character in our industry, and has a tremendous knowledge which we’re looking forward to tapping into as a team.”

Brian was originally a chef by trade, graduating as Top Chef of the Year from Perth College, before going onto own two pub restaurants. A self-proclaimed foodie, Brian has a bar at the bottom of his garden, from where he serves his drink of choice – a tequila and tonic!
