Exploring Life & Business with Amanda Thomson of Thomson & Scott

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Thomson. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Amanda Thomson is the CEO and Founder of global brand, Thomson & Scott and creator of Noughty, the world’s best alcohol-free sparkling Chardonnay and Rosé, with still dealcoholized wines launching in 2022. 

Sold in more than 35 countries after only launching in London Autumn 2019, she is taking the drinks industry by storm. 

Having been brought up on a plant-based, no sugar diet by her health-conscious mother, Amanda has always had a keen interest in healthy living. 

After a successful career as an Arts Broadcaster at the BBC, she moved to Paris and studied for her Diploma in Wine at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu School. 

Amanda has since been announced as the only Brit on the US board of ANBA, the Adult Non-Alcoholic Beverage Association. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Starting a drinks brand from scratch is no easy task, let alone one with global ambitions. Add to that the further complication of making premium alcohol-free wine – a category that’s had little to offer when it comes to high quality prior – and you have a mountain to climb. 

Never one to duck a challenge, Amanda took this mission to change the drinks world for the better onto her small shoulders and ran with it. 

The struggles have been real; COVID, Brexit, and global shipping issues, to name three of many, which makes Noughty’s rapid rise in the US all the more impressive. 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We produce the world’s best Alcohol-Free wine. 

Taste is everything. We are constantly innovating in the space. We won’t stop until our beautiful bottles are poured everywhere alongside their alcoholic fine wine equivalents. 

We have our B Corp certification, putting sustainability and profit with purpose at the heart of what we do. 

What were you like growing up?
Amanda was always a curious child. Always asking questions, questions, and more questions. She grew up with a strong independent streak and a focus on getting things done. All typical Entrepreneurial qualities with hindsight, alongside – and maybe this is the most important quality of all – boundless energy.
