Giancarlo Tallarico is the man you see in this image. He is someone I was fortunate to find out more about as well as interview based on his style as well as successful spirits company: Tallarico Spirits. In the image you see, this adroit in his industry is wearing a Tom Ford suit with a Turnbull & Asser shirt and tie.
If you want clean tasting vodka, that compares if not beats a few of the best in the industry, Tallarico is the way to go!
WBM: How did your background lead you to where you are today?
GIANCARLO: I was raised in a luxury retail environment and then went out on my own to pursue the entrepreneur’s dream of creating something on their own. I had successful ventures as well as massive failures, until I realized, via an epiphany of sorts that I should combine my passion for wine and spirits with my luxury retail background, and Tallarico Vodka was born.
WBM: Tell me a bit about where you were raised?
GIANCARLO: I was raised in Los Angeles and spent most of my life on the famed Rodeo Dr. at my fathers jewelry store learning the luxury retail business.
WBM: What is a key lesson you’ve learned along the way?
GIANCARLO: To respect and learn from your failures since they often teach the greatest lessons.
WBM: Think of these four characteristics of entrepreneurs: heart, smart, guts, luck. Which one were you?
GIANCARLO: Heart- I never give up and I always pick myself up…(of course I would also like Luck!)
WBM: Where do you see yourself in five years?
GIANCARLO: Running The Tallarico Spirits Co.- A global spirits company with a multiple brand portfolio of course!
