About Mattias:

Originally hailing from the UK, Mattias began his career in the spirits industry as a bartender in England while studying psychology at the University of Chester.  There, he focused on the Psychology of the Hospitality Industry and still continues research into stress and the wellbeing of front line hospitality workers.

After several years of running the beverage program for Chefs Club by Food & Wine Aspen, skiing the slopes and organizing cocktail competitions in the Rocky Mountains, Horseman descended from the snowy peaks to join the Hendrick’s team in October 2016.  When not concocting specialized tipples, one can find Mattias and his four-wheeled partner Mila, a lovely and always pristine ’94 Miata, zooming around the racetrack or the busy streets of Chicago.

Mattias oversees the Central region of the U.S., covering everywhere from Montana to Texas, to Minnesota and Ohio. Mattias manages trade, consumer, and media integrations and is Hendrick’s lead mixologist.
