■ Emma Godivala.
■ Director, York Gin
■ Last book read: Mary Beard – Women and Power: A manifesto
■ Favourite holiday destination: Well, got to love Spain – largest gin market in the world,
■ Favourite film: Some Like It Hot!
■ First job: At school – behind the deli counter at Waitrose. More fun than you’d think.
■ What is the thing you are most proud of? Personally, obviously my children. Both now teens – they’ll be useful soon! But professionally I think setting up York Gin is up there. Creating a product, a brand and a new business from scratch has been exhilarating, and York has embraced it, and I’m very proud of that.
