Delegate Profile

Claire Warner

Job TitleManaging Director

Company NameSeedlip


Claire Warner began her corporate drinks career in 2003 working for LVMH owned brand Belvedere Vodka. In 2015 Claire was awarded both Best International Brand Ambassador at Tales of the Cocktail, the ‘Oscar’s’ of the drinks industry, and Wine Spectator Ambassador of the year for her role as Head of Spirit Creation & Mixology.

Warner joined Seedlip last year as head of new brands and has already got a major new launch underway. Æcorn Aperitifs, three non-alcoholic aperitifs are based on 17th century English herbal remedies and – given the huge success and brand dominance of Seedlip – are predicted to be big news. Warner has worked in the drinks industry for more than 20 years, starting at the sharp end as a bartender and working her way up, so she brings huge experience to the company. She was, for instance, a massive influence on the growth of LVMH’s Belvedere brand. She also works to promote good health and wellbeing in an alcohol-driven industry and is multiple award winner in a sector that’s previously been dominated by men.

A tireless advocate for better health and wellness within the hospitality industry, Claire joined the alcohol-free world of Seedlip in January 2018 as Managing Director, New Brands. In this role, Claire continues her mission to develop delicious drinks, regardless of their alcohol content, providing more sophisticated options for ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking’.
