Meet the Team: Eleanor Robson, Social Media Manager
Next up in our Meet the Team series, introducing Eleanor Robson, our Social Media Manager.
"I came into the drinks industry pretty serendipitously. I worked in bars and was involved in a student-run marketing group while at university, and while preparing to graduate, a friend reached out to let me know that the English distillery she worked for was looking for a marketing intern, and would I be interested. Naturally I jumped at the chance to work with them, and what started as a two month summer internship quickly became fifteen months and a real love for the drinks industry.
I joined the team here in January 2020 to manage the social media for Darnley's Gin, as well as our sister brands Wemyss Malts and Kingsbarns Distillery, and it's certainly been an unpredictable year! I truly love my job, it really is a passion for me. Every day is different, and while my role is in social media, I have the absolute pleasure of working with our talented team across so many aspects of the business. I also get to have a really close relationship with Darnley's Gin fans and the incredible gin community through our accounts - it's seriously rewarding to get to share in their experiences and hear first-hand how much they love what we're doing!
I'm all about the classics, so I love a simple Darnley's Original Gin & tonic, with a wheel of lemon for a burst of fresh citrus. The elderflower brings this beautiful floral sweetness to the gin, making it my go-to pour for the spring time. I can't wait for the summer, enjoying a Darnley's G&T in my favourite bars across Edinburgh."
