Entrepreneur, Hotelier

London

Martin Miller is an entrepreneur who owns several country-style hotels in England and produces is own premium liquor, Martin Miller’s Gin. His independent spirit was first noticed at an early age, when the lad did everything from breed hamsters to create a dating guide for local boys. In the decades following, Miller dabbled in photography and organized concerts before finding success as the co-founder of a respected series of antique directories called Miller’s Antique Price Guide. By the late 1980s, he had moved on to hospitality. Miller now successfully owns eight eclectic boutique hotels across the U.K. And the gin that he started in 1999 is still winning over fans — Martin Miller’s Gin was named Best Gin in Show at the 69th annual Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America Convention in 2012.
