Founders and childhood friends, Jasper and Edwin, planned to launch Oranj as a bar dedicated to low intervention wines. Covid scuppered their plans, so they've reimagined the concept as a delivery service, allowing people to try some of the best natural wines from lesser known producers at home, in the park, on the beach or anywhere a bottle opener is present.
Edwin's background is in independently made drinks. He started his craft adventure at the notorious London Fields Brewery. This led on to sales and distribution jobs with some of the greats, such as Alhambra, Camden Town Brewery, Cornish Orchard, Frontier, Sierra Nevada, Thornbridge, Veltins and Yeastie boys, via West Side Drinks. More recently, Edwin has been overseeing the sales of Hackney-based 40FT Brewery and Three Chiefs Brewing of El Segundo, California.
Jasper is a master of many arts and has worked in the worlds of TV & Film, design and hospitality. Since he learnt how to climb trees, he has been turning mad ideas into reality. Within hospitality Jasper started out designing and running food pop ups. He then went on to study a degree in design at Goldsmiths and work as a freelancer and with interior installation businesses. Now, alongside Oranj he runs his own design company, Hanway D+B specialising in building custom-made bars and restaurants. He brings his creative love for art, good tunes, food and of course drink to Oranj.
