Legendary creator of Mexican Craft Spirits and all-round revolutionary of the industry, Dr Iván Saldaña, is set to visit London on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October.

As part of his visit to the UK, we are offering you the opportunity for a 1-to-1 interview with the man himself – who was named as one of Mexico’s top ten most influential entrepreneurs.

Iván is Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Casa Lumbre, and an industry leading educator. Sparked by a childhood spent in one of Mexico’s key Agave regions, Ivan’s aim is to create products which pay homage to the heritage of Mexico and its rich agricultural produce. From that, Casa Lumbre was born with a bold spirit and clear purpose: to challenge the limits of conventional to create new generations of unique and culturally iconic brands. With a PHD in biology, specialising in Agave spirits, Ivan has spent time working in R&D and with environmental impact initiatives – both of which fuel the ethos behind Casa Lumbre.

Casa Lumbre’s three main brands (all of which are distributed by Mangrove Global) are Abasalo Ancestral Corn Whisky, Nixta Elote Liqueur, and Ojo de Tigre Mezcal, and each are widely recognised for their taste, quality, and ‘farm-to-bottle’ provenance.  A charismatic character in his own right, Iván has innovated the spirits industry and entrepreneurial landscape in Mexico. His visit is testament to the importance of the UK market.

Driven by passion, innovation, and talent, Ivan anticipates trends and enriches the lives of people around the world, through his extraordinary brands. Therefore, as part of interviews, Iván would be happy to discuss the future of the Casa Lumbre brands, market performance, and the rise of Mexican spirits.
