Meet the Spirits Kiosk Team

Emile Ward
Head Buyer and Chief Taster

Emile built Spirits Kiosk’s previous incarnation, Gin Kiosk, from scratch and developed it into the UK’s largest single category spirits retailer. Emile also runs the international gin festival, Junipalooza, held in London and Melbourne each year and has spent the past six years collaborating with distilleries and innovating unique products.

Emile’s discerning eye for detail and quality is balanced by having an inclusive approach and a broad understanding of what drinkers want. He’s the one responsible for what we stock and the direction we take to best support the amazing distilleries we work with. He’s got a natural soft spot for Tequila, his passion spirit but you’ll frequently find him sipping on a Negroni or two...

Emile won the Icons of Gin Buyer of the Year award in 2021.
