The Light Bulb

Andrew and Simon share a love of great times with quality food and drinks… and they certainly know their drink!

Chicago in June 2017 had been a ‘light bulb’ moment for Andrew. Tasting the HAVN Antwerp Gin for the first time on one of his client’s exhibition stands, he recognised the potential to bring the brand to the UK Premium Spirits market.

Finally, after two long years of thorough market research (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!) LILO became a reality.

Who are LILO?

LILO is a family run business started by Andrew Schofield and Simon Marriott. Both join forces to bring a selection of inspiring, new, high-end brands to the UK Premium Drinks market and to ensure that the service and value proposition is second to none.

Andrew is a former Global Sales and Marketing Director and has spent the majority of his adult life travelling the world. This has given him a wealth of experience of entertaining and other cultures.

For brother-in-law Simon, this industry is in his blood. Simon has 30 years experience working in beverage supply, as did his father before him.
