Family, Legacy & Love
HAND CRAFTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2013, MANUFACTURED AND IN BEVERAGE RETAILERS THREE YEARS LATER, ZURENA HONORS THE LATE CARLTON SMITH, A MASTER MIXOLOGIST AND GRANDFATHER OF FOUNDER NIGEL SMITH. CARLTON’S FAITH AND FAMILY APPROACH LEFT AN AMAZING EXAMPLE FOR NIGEL AND INSPIRED THE CREATION OF THIS LABOR OF LOVE. “ZURENA” CARRIES THE NAMES OF CARLTON’S GREAT GRANDDAUGHTERS, ZURI, SWAHILI FOR BEAUTIFUL AND RENA, HEBREW FOR JOYFUL MELODY.
IT IS THIS BEAUTIFUL JOYFUL MELODY THAT IS EXPERIENCED WITH EACH POUR. THE JOURNEY TO ZURENA’S INCEPTION ENCOURAGES ALL OF US TO DISCOVER OUR UNIQUE GIFTS AND TALENTS AND SHARE THEM WITH THE WORLD. THIS IS OUR LEGACY!
Our vision 5 years ago remains our vision today: to be a staple in every home and every professional bar in the world. Please join us in our ambitious journey.
