The Bon Vivants

In 2009, close friends Josh Harris and Scott Baird co-founded The Bon Vivants and in early 2011 hired their Los Angeles Ambassador, Alex Straus. The Bon Vivants is a nationally recognized cocktail and spirit consulting company specializing in the creation of on-premise beverage programs, staff education and inspiration, concept and flavor innovation consulting for spirits brands, branding and guerilla marketing strategies for liquor companies, audience identification, ambassadorship, and the composition and execution of creative curated events. The Bon Vivants is also a branded umbrella for a growing brick and mortar component. The Bon Vivants strive to create value in their work by operating under a philosophy of inclusion - a principle tenet of this philosophy includes finding new and creative ways to bridge the gap between the beverage industry, and the average consumer, while building community through the act of enjoying a delicious drink.
