Irene Benjamin says of her drink, “Back to Basics is all about the simple things in life, the things that make me happy and keep me motivated through hard and busy times. I tried to capture memories and the people that affected me and made me who I am today - my friends, family and my partner in life. One of the things that really motivates me is the desire to take care of our planet. I put a lot of sustainable thinking into my cocktail, I believe we can all take care of our planet by maximising our products and extending their lifetime. My agenda is to help to create a better world and a greener future.”
