Malin’s Biography

Malin Spano is the founder of the aperitif Pomello, recently launched in June 2023. Pomello was envisioned from Malin’s extensive experience in the luxury hospitality industry, having noticed a gap in the market for an upscale aperitif with the distinct flavour profile of elderflower and pomello.

From there, Malin continued her career as a consultant based in the South of France for five years. On her return to London, she joined the Birley Clubs as Director of Membership where she remained...
