Here’s the buzz: Amanda Victoria is the visionary CEO and co-founder of Siponey, a premium canned cocktail made from aged rye whiskey, local New York City wildflower honey, and real lemon juice. She’s an environmental manufacturing, social impact, and product development guru, not to mention activist, ally, and mother. Amanda’s aim is to give back to the community and the planet by serving up “honeybee sustainability in a can.” She sits on the advisory board of Detroit Hives, a nonprofit that converts vacant lots into bee farms tended by local youth. Siponey donates a percentage of profits to the cause (and many others!).
Amanda began her career in spirits in the early 2000s, and has since become an award-winning leader in the cocktail lifestyle industry. A proud Latina, Amanda brought representation to the industry by working with brands like Lillet, St-Germain, Cointreau, and Belvedere Vodka. She founded Aperitif Hour, a drinks-based education company, and is a past-director of judging and partner of the L.A. Spirits Awards, where she led a digital community built on inclusive and diverse talents.
