Julian Peebles and Tory Brown
Julian and Tory, coworkers turned lifelong friends, started their journey together in the tech industry, where both founders shared common ground with each other as men of color. After achieving success in their tech careers, they felt a strong desire to build a legacy, something of their own fruition and creative vision that could be passed on to future generations and other black-owned businesses. Their overall vision: to make a positive impact on the spirits industry by creating a company that takes pride in its representation and diversity. By mentoring and motivating other black-owned companies, Tory and Julian believe they can build a more diverse and inclusive spirits industry.
