Candice Harper - Distillery Concierge and Social Media Guru
& Social Media Guru
Everyone, meet Candice – Concierge to Napa Valley Distillery!
Candice was born in Vallejo and just bought her first house in Napa with her boyfriend Hernan (who has been known to write recipes for our Bar Club shipments!) She has two Associates degrees in Natural Science and Mathematics and graduated Sacramento State with a BA in Communications.
As Napa Valley Distillery continues to grow, the company recognized there was a need for someone to help keep structure of our growing schedule of tours and tastings. This is where Candice comes in. As Concierge, she is often the first point of contact for guests visiting our Grand Tasting Salon. She runs our Blue Room gift shop, assisting with sales, phone calls, emails, inventory and all other things to help the customer experience go smoothly. During the week, you can sometimes find her providing spirits tastings at our Oxbow Tasting Room. She is also one of the main showrunners of our social media!
As part of her move to Napa, Candice started with us in late February of 2018. Her 10-year plan includes building her new house into her dream home – complete with furnishings, a garden and another husky to add to her family!
Candice loves Napa and everything in it. Some of her places to eat and drink include Eiko’s Sushi and Palisades Saloon (which both carry our spirits… wink wink). She also enjoys a craft cocktail at Morimoto.
When Candice goes out she typically orders a boulevardier because she’s always loved whiskey. But she’s discovered a new appreciation for a negroni. Like many others before her, she never considered herself a gin person… until she tried our Old Hollywood Ginn. Luckily, we make a bottled Negroni Cocktail, but if Napa Valley Distillery were to make something new, she’d love to see us make a boulevardier. As far as her favorite item that Napa Valley Distillery currently makes, Candice loves our 4-year Rumslinger Rum.
