Women Leading Rum: Panelist
Growing up in Milwaukee, Adrienne discovered a passion for service industry when she started working in restaurants at the ripe young age of 12 years old. Ultimately, her truest passion developed with experience in spirits knowledge and craft cocktails under the tutelage of Paul McGee. After years of bartending throughout the city she found a home in tiki which was a serendipitous combination of all her talents and desires: craft, performance, costume, history, and of course good ‘ol fashioned hospitality. She has since ended her tenure behind the stick to pursue her love of spirits production and education. Maison Ferrand brought Adrienne into their team where she now represents the entire portfolio as the On Premise Manager for the Chicagoland area.
