Riddle me this… Jane Maher
Up close and personal with Tullamore DEW Irish whiskey Distillery Ambassador
If you knew then what you know now… would you still do it?
100%! It is part of life. If I’ve learned something from it, then it was worth it.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“Slow down.” I had just been appointed as the Tullamore DEW Brand Ambassador in California and this nugget came from a maverick of the industry. I never forgot it, he taught me to focus on the bigger picture and not to try to tackle too many things at once.
What’s the weirdest rumour you’ve ever heard about yourself?
Mum: “Are you in LA at a party with that actor, what’s his name… Colin Farrell?” A rumour went around my hometown in Ireland that I was partying with the stars, turns out it was actually true!
What was your biggest break?
I broke my left elbow once 🙂
Being offered the opportunity to become the first ever Distillery Ambassador at Tullamore DEW was a real honor and has allowed me to engage with the most influential people in the business.
Do you consider yourself lucky?
I have been so fortunate in life, but I believe every success story involves a sprinkling of luck. You know what they say, the harder you work the luckier you become.
What’s most important in your life?
Positivity, family and friends. I always aim to adopt a positive outlook on life, that way I manage to remain friends with my family!
What brands do you admire?
Folkster is an amazing fashion brand that is truly unique. Homegrown in Ireland, they’ve featured in Elle, Vogue Japan & Company. I really admire how they have built their brand, plus they have a flawless sense of style http://www.folkster.com
Do you have a guilty pleasure – if so what is it?
I wish it was something simple like The Kardashians, but as a type-1 diabetic, sweets and ice cream are a real pleasure. I always feel REALLY guilty afterwards!
Describe your personal sense of style.
Being a Tullamore DEW Ambassador means you get to be yourself. I love a bit of boho chic. I’m hugely influenced by the typical Californian, laid-back style – lots of shorts and boots! Luckily I’ll be taking up residence in Los Angeles very soon as West Coast Ambassador for Tullamore DEW.
