Alexander 'Zan' Kong was born and grew up near Toronto in Canada, part of a large Chinese-Jamaican family. However, when offered the chance to move to Jamaica and work in the world of rum, he jumped at the chance.
His rum journey with Worthy Park began in 2015 after a chance meeting with his (now) boss, Gordon Clarke, and he joined the Worthy Park team to develop and grow the export side of the business. In his current capacity he wears many hats, from sales to marketing to product development, and is both brand advocate and educator for the distillery, taking his love of Worthy Park around the world.
Come and say hello at the Worthy Park stand at the show, for a chat about all things Jamaica, Worthy Park and of course rum!
