Andrew Troyer - Founder
Even from a young age, Andrew had a keen and discerning eye for fine things. Ultimately, this passion led to a career helping others fulfill their propensity for luxury. For nearly two decades, Andrew traveled the globe representing exotic automobiles and yachts. Consequently, in late November 2013, Andrew sat discussing fine spirits with a colleague, at which time he asked the question, “Where is all of the amazing sipping rum?” This curiosity marked the beginning of a three year adventure involving seven countries, and tireless effort, in order to bring the dream of ARÔME 28 to life. Despite the hurdles and opposition, Andrew’s passion led him to found, develop, and design ARÔME, a brand symbol of luxury in the fine rum and spirits market.
“One shouldn’t compromise when seeking the best.” – Andrew Troyer
