LUCKY SAINT – SCOTLAND SALES ACCOUNT MANAGER


THE BRAND


Lucky Saint is redefining the drinking experience. Our founder, Luke Boase, launched Lucky Saint in late 2018 with an ambition to change the perception of alcohol-free beer and the drinking experience, worldwide. Since the launch of our 0.5% ABV classic Pilsner style lager, Lucky Saint has received widespread attention from top industry professionals, the UK’s best operators, and the media. To put it simply, we are going to revolutionise the non-alcoholic beer category.


We were recently awarded the prestigious Imbibe Best No/Low Lager and have been welcomed by the prestigious BBPA (British Beer and Pub Association) as its first alcohol free member in its 116-year history. Once again pushing boundaries and changing expectations.


We are currently a small, growing team, who all passionately care about the brand and maintaining exceptionally high standards at all touch points of the business - whether that’s working with consumers, customers, our suppliers and each other. We’re interested in people who want to spearhead a revolution in the industry, who are naturally curious, entrepreneurial, commercial and restless to make magic happen.


Already listed in over 4000 outlets across the UK, including 56 Michelin star restaurants, and over 200 venues serving us on tap. The on trade is our heartland and our mission is to become the defining draught alcohol free beer, so that no consumer has to compromise.
