Liv Bader-Shores

Bacardi-Martini Product Development
Senior Beverage Scientist
Jacksonville, Florida

Being the daughter of a Flavorist, Liv grew up in the international flavor and fragrance industry. Whether her father brought home the latest candy concepts, chips from a Snaxpo convention, or a perfume designed just for her, she was always intrigued by taste and aroma. After a trip to Provence and a nose full of lavender, she was ready to develop fragrances…until she learned at the early age of 11 that she would have to be fluent in French to attend one of the top Perfumery Schools. Then food suddenly became a perfect option.


Since then, Liv went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Food Science & Human Nutrition (we don’t speak of the slight wrong turn into Chemical Engineering) with a minor in Business Administration at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), followed by a Master’s of Science in Food Science & Human Nutrition with emphasis on Food and Sensory Science. After spending three years at a vitamin & sports nutrition company setting up the Sensory Department, it was time to move on to something that tasted significantly better. She joined Bacardi-Martini Product Development in 2003 and has been creating, developing, and producing products ever since, including Gin, Flavored Rums, Flavored Vodka, Low Proof, and Mid Proof, in the quest to see the world, one Bacardi Plant at a time.
