about

Our Mission

Our mission is to build a unique portfolio of top quality wine and spirits brands whose businesses we will help to develop in Asian markets. We create long term, sustainable business relationships based on honesty, integrity and service excellence.

Through a mix of training and education, events, branding and specialised marketing, with successful and skillful communication lying at the heart of the business, we aim to make quality wines and spirits better understood and more contemporary to an ever increasing Asian market.

We bring you independent and honest expert advice, offering a bespoke, tailor-made service for each of our clients. By listening carefully to individual needs and expectations, and by employing the necessary techniques, we ensure customer satisfaction and success.

We believe that quality wines and spirits should be being enjoyed by more people in more places around the world.

Founder/Director

Francesca Martin

Francesca has always been passionate about wine. Ever since her father took her to Paris when she was 12 and gave her her first sip of Bordeaux. That was it. She was totally hooked!

Over the past ten years Francesca's career has spanned three continents and multiple disciplines – from brand management to PR, from winemaking to marketing – giving her a unique degree of fluency in wine and spirits consultancy services.

Over the years she has worked for some of the most renowned names in the global wine industry, including Miguel Torres in Spain, Liberty Wines and Steven Spurrier in the U.K., and ASC Fine Wines in Hong Kong. In the summer of 2013, she decided to go it alone and set up BEE Drinks Global, a drinks consultancy company based in Hong Kong.

Francesca holds the WSET Level 4 Diploma, is a certified WSET teacher up to Level 3 and is currently studying for the Master of Wine. She has managed premium quality wine brands from all over the world including Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite, Vega Sicilia, Ornellaia, Leeuwin Estate, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Maison Trimbach, E. Guigal, Donnafugata, Laroche and Petaluma. She has also spent time working with bigger alcohol companies such as Pernod Ricard.

A perfectionist at heart and a creative thinker, Francesca's approach to work is always highly dedicated and laced with as much fun as possible! In her spare time she enjoys doing anything that involves being outdoors, dancing, reading, cooking, yoga and dreaming up off-the-wall new business ideas.
