The London-based firm said today that Shaun Claydon has replaced Sarah Bertolotti in the role with “immediate effect”. 

Claydon was most recently a consultant for corporate advisory practice CMS. Prior to that he spent four years as CFO at medical device group Orteq Sports Medicine.

Distil's brands include Blavod Original Black Vodka, Blackwood's Vintage Gin, Blackwood's Limited Edition Vintage Gin, Blackwood's Vodka, RedLeg Spiced Rum, Diva Vodka and Jago's Vanilla Cream Liqueur.  The brands are sold in the UK, US, Germany, Spain, Australia and Russia.
