Nicola Nice, CEO, Pomp & Whimsy 

Dr. Nicola Nice is a consumer insights and innovation specialist with expertise in spirits, fashion, personal care and the female consumer.  A sociologist by training, she has spent the last 15 years advising large producers like Diageo, Gruppo Campari and Bacardi on their brand strategies. Frustrated with the misrepresentation of the female consumer in the industry, in 2015 she turned her attention towards brand creation, developing Pomp & Whimsy – a gin liqueur that is uniquely tailored to the female experience.  Crafted in Los Angeles from 16 whole botanicals, Pomp & Whimsy launched to wide critical acclaim, winning 4x golds, and 1x silver at major spirits competitions so far this year.


 Thomas Bleakley, Partner, Malahat Spirits

Malahat Spirits Co. makes award winning rum and whiskey.  The distillery was founded in 2012 by three friends to create the finest spirits for themselves, their friends and their families.  Their combined belief that the spirits industry could benefit from an infusion of experimentation, locally sourced ingredients, and good old fashioned handcrafting brought them together to found the distillery.


Marc Truex, Director of Sales at Belching Beaver Brewery

“Belching Beaver Brewery came from a desire to make great beer and have a Dam good time doing it. When we started the company we wanted to do two things: First, have a brand that offered quality craft beer but was whimsical and fun to inspire good times. From the Winking Milkman to El Castor de Mariachi you can see each Beaver has its own individual style and personality. Second, we wanted to make beer for everyone and all palates. We have easy-drinking Blondes, Triple IPAs, Milk Stouts, Imperial Stouts as well as sours and barrel-aged beers. You name it, we have it! Good times to you my friend, and welcome to the Beaver family.”

What a fabulous evening!
