Erik is one of the best to combine extreme professionalism with a touch of ease which he puts everyone at. Not only has he prove to have a wide knowledge of Rum and spirits, but is a strategic sales person and most importantly is one of the best team players. I would gladly vouch for Erik and he would be an asset to any team and organization.
