Ramone Robertson

Director & Co-Founder

My background was in factory work and the oil & gas industry in a previous life, way back in my twenties. Now 34 and 6 years into Huffmans, I haven’t looked back since switching up my career path. Building up the company with nothing but Microsoft Word, Google Sheets and 7 brands to what it is now has been worth every headache and sleepless night. Working alongside a dedicated stellar team who are always pushing forward and adapting to the ever changing industry takes the strain from work ever feeling like…work. In my spare time, I’m a keen kayaker, frequently spotted battling currents not in my favour somewhere along the coast. Anything else orientated around the great outdoors though, I’m in!

Gregor Maclean

Director & Co-Founder

I started my career in drinks 10 years ago working for one of the world’s biggest spirits companies. I learned a huge amount about the industry which ignited my passion for all things drinks related. Since starting Huffmans we have brought out our own gin, taken over a whisky and gin shop, grown the range from 7 to 1200 products, started a fulfilment arm to the business and I have been lucky enough to be a taste judge in the Scottish Gin Awards for the last 4 years however there is still plenty to come! I enjoy travelling, work or leisure, and have been lucky enough to visit places like Lynchburg, Tokyo and Havana. When I’m not working I’ll be hanging out with my wife, Elizabeth and my 2 daughters, Teddy and Minnie! That takes all of my time!

Sales Manager

Jin Griffiths

Absolutely chuffed to bits to be joining the team at Huffmans, and getting stuck into my role as Sales Manager.
My career in the drinks industry began in Oddbins in the mid-nineties, followed by a stint managing independent wine and spirits shops, and up until recently working for a wine wholesalers.
I love anything to do with food and drink, and have a particular fondness for Belgian sour beers and pretty much any sort of cheese.
I’m incredibly fortunate that my career in the trade has allowed me so many opportunities to travel to some wonderful places all over the world, as I love exploring, and meeting new people. I’m equally happy wild camping by a remote Scottish loch, or hanging out at a winery in South America, given the chance.
In my spare time, if I’m not attending a music gig, or socialising with friends, you can find me pottering about in my garden, dabbling with a bit of baking, or just chilling with my two rescue cats, Marley and Indy, most probably watching a Scandi-Noir crime drama.

A career with excellent experience in the Food & Drinks industry, where I have worked in roles from Regional to National Sales Management, to Customer Marketing and Logistics. I have spent almost 20 years working for well-known FMCG Brands such as Kellogg’s, Coca Cola, Lucozade & Ribena in a variety of sales & customer marketing roles. I also have experience within the Convenience Retail and Food & Drink Wholesale sectors, as well as latterly working in the Third Party Logistics & Fulfilment sector.

My role in Huffmans is to develop sales via several existing and new business channels & clients, as well as developing our relationships with the brands and distilleries we work with. I will also be working on the development of our fulfilment business, Boxworx.

Administrative Manager

Jacqueline Sutherland

I am mighty proud to be a member of team Huffmans, supporting the founders in their bid to be best, as Admin Manager. I can be found perched on a ‘fit ball’ as my office chair, but look forward to the outdoors no matter the weather. A keen spotter of flora and fauna, I enjoy walking and skiing. I attend weekly fitness classes including dance and yoga. I have all the gear and no idea, as a budding golfer, planning for my retirement! Always looking for an excuse to open a bottle of Nebbiolo, love sharing my passion for a dram or a gin. Latest achievement was passing WSET 2 with distinction.

Warehouse Manager

John Robertson

My background started off in the world of sports where I went from coaching football at my old primary school, Glamis, to eventually a position with Hibernian FC. From there I then moved into a life of fitness, qualified as a fitness advisor, and spent many joyful years within different gyms. I decided to leave the life I was accustomed to and challenge myself in a completely new environment by joining the team at Huffmans. My hobbies still revolve around football and the gym but my spare time is now fully focused on being a dad for the first time to my beautiful baby girl Evie, born on March 11th 2020, who has been a blessing to me and my girlfriend. For the past 2 years I’ve dedicated my spare time to being a RDS Firefighter for Scottish Fire and Rescue within my community. This is a challenging but rewarding role.

Delivery Driver / Warehouse Assistant

Neil Mathieson

A job opportunity caught my attention while browsing on Indeed. Huffmans, a company I hadn’t heard of before, was hiring a full-time van driver/warehouse assistant. Intrigued, I decided to look them up online. I discovered that Gregor and Ramone had an inspiring vision for the company’s growth, which got me excited. I felt a strong desire to join their team and contribute to their future success.
During my spare time, I enjoy playing 5-aside football on Sundays. It’s a hobby I’ve been engaged in for the past 20 years, albeit with some breaks. Additionally, I like going to the gym 3-4 times a week to stay active. Spending quality time with my fiancée and children is also a priority for me. Taking my son to Aberdeen games and going out for meals with family members are activities I cherish.
Looking ahead, we moved a new house just over a year ago, and I have set goals to elevate it to my desired standards as soon as possible. Furthermore, my fiancée and I are excitedly planning our wedding, scheduled for next year. On a lighter note, I enjoy visiting my local pub, especially on Fridays after work. I find the beer garden particularly delightful during the Summer, as nothing beats savouring a cold pint in the sun.
Moreover, I am filled with anticipation for what the future holds and I am extremely enthusiastic about the opportunity to grow and develop with Huffmans. The prospect of being part of their journey and witnessing their progress is truly exhilarating. I can’t wait to contribute my skills and dedication to help them achieve their goals and make a positive impact on their business.

Digital Marketing and Design

Hayley Simpson

Professional brownie maker and Digital Marketing gal. I joined the Huffmans team in September 2023 and have been loving it ever since! I graduated uni last year and I am new to the drinks industry – so bare with me! In my free time you’ll find me on the sofa reading a good book or in the kitchen baking! 

Sales Manager

Anne Duguid

My career started off working full-time in office environments for many years, I took on direct selling with the Body Shop at Home which took me on a very successful journey, through sales, recruiting, and winning exotic holidays over 15 years ending when COVID-19 struck. I joined Gordon and MacPhail 8 years ago as an office administrator/telesales gaining knowledge and promoting to a Sales Executive. I love to sell and get a real buzz. I pride myself on great customer service.  I am delighted to further my career with Huffmans, I am the newest recruit within the company in my role as Sales Manager to continue doing what I love. 

My latest achievement through the spirits industry was passing my WSET 2 with distinction.

In my spare time, if not socialising, I go for a walk along the beach. I played darts in the women’s & men’s local pub league.  I was the lady’s captain.  I like to follow the Scotland Rugby Team, cheering on Scotland.

Buyer

Elaine Murdoch

I was delighted to have the opportunity to become a member of another family run business after having worked 9 years as a buyer with Gordon and Macphail.  I have a total of 15 years experience in wholesale.   Since June 2020 I  have been home based in the North East of Scotland.  I have two ‘grand furboys’, Russell a 4 year old cockapoo and Cole a three year old Cocker Spaniel, both of whom keep me on my toes.  I love rollercoasters, the bigger the better and recently tried para-gliding in Thailand.  I read a lot, my favourite footwear is crocs and my favourite tipple is Blue WKD (please don’t judge me too harshly – I got 98% in my Stage 2 WSET exam so I like to think I have a wee bit of knowledge of the industry I work in 🙂).

Delivery Driver / Warehouse Assistant

Joe Thomson

I decided to join Huffmans because  the chance came up to get back into warehousing after a I had a 5 year break. In my free time you’ll find me at the  Aberdeen football club cheering on the team, which I attend with my son. I also like spending time with my missus and walking the dog.

Iona Maclean

I started my first ‘internship’ with Huffmans in January 2017 as part of my Business Management degree at the University of Dundee. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to be given opportunities from Gregor and Ramone and now head up Huffmans fulfilment centre – Boxworx. I was always unsure as to which path I wanted to take in my career. As I was thinking of topics for my dissertation, Gregor suggested the current gin trend and this is when my interest began. Learning about all things gin and winning an award for the best dissertation of my degree, I knew this was the industry for me.
I love exploring Scotland and discovering ‘hidden gems’ with my partner Thomas. My parent’s dogs (two white German Shepherds) are a huge part of my life. 

Here’s hoping I’ll get my own soon and it can join the Huffmans/Boxworx team.
