Style. Substance. Experience.
Johan and Ruth have been working together for 8 years already in various spirits-related ventures. Johan has worked mostly for brand agencies who serviced clients as Diageo, Pernod Ricard and Unilever and Onder de Boompjes Distillery.
Ruth has worked for largest beverage caterer in the Netherlands, servicing all the brand activations for Bacardi and Nolet Distillery.
8 years ago they came together and formed a strong pact together. Fort Cerise is the result where both Ruth & Johan do exactly where their passion is; creative management with a strong analytical backbone and a hands-on approach to every aspect of the business.
