Kari Bishop

Kari is a Senior Scientist at Bacardi-Martini Product Development.  She crafts the liquids for new products, making sure every drop is produced to perfection.  How does one fall into this fulfilling line of work?  It started with a Bachelor of Science in Food Science from the University of Florida, followed by a Master’s of Business Administration.  Kari joined Bacardi in 2002 where she has been working in product development ever since.  She works with all types of spirits for many markets.  The process is balance of science and creativity.

It starts with consumer understanding to select the right ingredients.  Then Kari uses her expertise and creativity to bring those ingredients together in a unique way to deliver a great tasting product.  Great taste isn’t enough though.  The products must be safe and reproducible, so she spends a good amount of time designing quality into new liquids to make consumers receive the same great taste consistently every time.   Kari is passionate about great taste and all of the science that supports it.
