More about Frankie
Frankie Snobel is solo female founder, who exited her drinks business in six years, after acquisition from the global drinks conglomerate that she had written into her first business plan in 2012.
A cocktail enthusiast with a decade of mixology experience, Frankie launched Tipplesworth in 2013, initially creating the world’s first cocktail case, then targeting home cocktails with mixers. Initially, it seemed that it would be her brilliant brand and unique product line that would be her success, but in the end, it was a clever and very timely pivot to grab a hold of the “cocktails-on-tap” opportunity that led to Frankie’s business sale to Diageo plc. With her business sold, Frankie is now on Diageo’s cocktail innovation team and is spending her free time giving back to the community that made her by advising entrepreneurs along their journeys.
