Sarah Martin, Regional Manager Grain & Barrel Spirits, joined the team in 2015 as Field Marketing Manager.  Grain & Barrel Spirits is a craft spirit company focused on the creation of innovative products and redevelopment of historically significant brands.  The Company’s darling is Dixie Vodka produced locally in Charleston, SC.


In her role as Regional Manager, it is Martin’s responsibility to work at a senior level with Grain & Barrel’s third party distributors to ensure effective focus is placed upon Grain & Barrel products in the market.  She also serves an integral role in training, education and advice to both the Distributor’s team, as well as trade customers about Grain & Barrel products and brands.


Prior to joining Grain & Barrel, Martin spent the majority of her career behind some of the top bars in Charleston.  She was Charleston’s Top Cocktail winner in 2013 and recipient of numerous accolades in cocktail competitions.  Martin’s recipes have been published in Food & Wine, USA Today, Fox News Magazine, Charleston Magazine and many other local, regional, and national publications.  She now brings that experience and enthusiasm to Grain and Barrel’s portfolio to spread the word throughout the South.


Martin currently lives in Atlanta, GA, is a Certified Spirits Specialist from the Society of Wine Educators, a yoga instructor, and a mother of two beautiful girls.



The Savannah Food & Wine Festival is presented by the Tourism Leadership Council, a 501-(c) 6 organization, and The AdFish Group, with proceeds benefiting the TLC Scholarship Fund, with educational opportunities for hospitality program students in colleges and universities in the Coastal Empire and many local charitable organizations.
