Carin Luna-Ostaseski

Carin Luna-Ostaseski, Founder of SIA Scotch Whisky, crafted Mixology education at the 2022 Symposium. Carin is one of the first Hispanic female founders of a scotch whisky and in her own words, SIA was born out of her perseverance & passion.

She has inspired other entrepreneurs to strive for greatness and in 2021, SIA Scotch Whisky created The Entrepreneurial Spirit Fund. Not only do they donate to small multicultural business owners, they also offer mentorship to help their recipients to thrive.

In her own words, “SIA is an equal opportunity whisky.”
