ABOUT SARAH FEENEY
As a partner in a successful gin start-up, Sarah knows how to create STAND-OUT brands —because she's done it herself.
Throughout her work, Sarah has earned a living as a brand strategist, shaper and communicator working with start-ups, entrepreneurs, and brands looking to launch in new markets, grow or reconnect with themselves.
After working in-house for eight years at PUMA and then Ben Sherman, she founded and directed her first agency, "15 Minutes", in 2004 with clients howies, cult clothing brand Modern Amusement and Lee Cooper, amongst others.
Using the moniker “Under Rocks”, Sarah went freelance in 2009 to secretly live on the road for seven years whilst helping Sailor Jerry Rum launch in 35 countries worldwide.
From 2016 onwards, Sarah acquired specialist knowledge of the American market, having worked collaboratively to help shape and launch VICE Media’s beer in New York, 805 Beer in six US states and her current project, Sweet Gwendoline French Gin, in which she owns equity.
Sarah is now happy to share her experience, creativity and strategic knowledge to help thought leaders turn their ideas into actionable manifestos.

"Sarah Feeney has an illustrious career working on lifestyle and culture-based brands and was featured in the BBC documentary "Cool Hunters" on how brands express their culture for authenticity.
She is a highly creative brand expert with a unique skill set in brand architecture, DNA, playbooks, culture marketing, brand books, growth, and revenue development.
A remote live-work pioneer, she spent ten years travelling the globe relentlessly to immerse herself in the local culture whilst launching brands in 35 countries.
She has a clear understanding of aesthetics, culture, lifestyle and influence and a keen editorial eye that designed, built, and provided the photography for this website."
"A legend in her own right... Sarah is probably the world's first method researcher where she immersed herself in the community or culture she researched to give her clients the best and most authentic point-of-view for their needs."
