ABOUT THE FOUNDERS – Sam Showering & Joe Knopfler
Name: Sam Showering (33)
Role: Founder and Managing Director
Did you know? Sam is a 16th Generation Drink Maker. His family created: Babycham and Brother’s Drinks
On the first weekend of the first year of University, Pedrino founder Sam Showering knew he’d made a terrible mistake. Without ceremony, he left, knowing he wanted to join the Showering family drinks business – the people behind some of the UK’s iconic party drinks like Babycham. Before starting on
the factory floor, Sam enjoyed one last care-free summer and went on a gastronomical Grand Tour around Europe. The rich, smooth and sun-soaked fortified wines soon became a favourite. He got to know and enjoy them with locals – sometimes with tonic and always in the sun. Years later, after a period with Fever-Tree where he finished-off his appreciation for a well-balanced drink, Sam set about finding the perfect botanical match for those beloved fine fortified wines. And so Pedrino was born.
Name: Joe Knopfler (33)
Role: Founder and Director
Did you know? Joe’s grandfather is the real Mr Salomone, The Plaza Hotel manager from Kay Thompson’s ‘Eloise’ books.
