On this episode of “Market Makers” we sit down with Stelios Stavrianos the Founder & CEO of The Corebev Group and maker of Cylinder Vodka. During our time together we discussed his background, why he decided to launch Cylinder Vodka, and what else they’re working on at The Corebev Group. 

ABOUT

Stelios Stavrianos graduated from Sacred Heart in 2014 and has been in the hospitality industry for over 12 years, and also has over 9 years of experience working in wealth management. He began his bartending and banking career at the age of 19. Starting at JPMorgan Chase, Stelios quickly climbed the ladder and was part of an innovation committee that headed the opening of several new tech-heavy retail bank branches. In his free time, Stelios began formulating and branding a vodka concept. In 2015 he joined Merrill Lynch and helped manage a team of wealth management advisors with AUM of $2BB. In 2017, Stelios joined tech startup Aventri, where he led a business development team. In the same year,

Cylinder Vodka was born and brought to market. By late 2018 Stelios had left Aventri to pursue the growth of Cylinder Vodka full-time, and eventually launched Corebev Group with the goal of introducing several new innovative alcohol brands to the market. Cylinder began with its founder, Stelios, who loved being a bartender at top bars known for their craft cocktails, and over time developed an appreciation and knowledge for how the best spirits were made. Stelios quickly saw a taste and quality gap in the vodkas available and embarked on a mission to create one that would set the bar for the spirits industry. The years spent on the Cylinder formula proved a success, creating a vodka so incredibly smooth that it would go on to win over a dozen platinum, gold, and consumers’ choice awards. Cylinder is distilled 6 times, non-GMO, naturally gluten-free, and has an unparalleled ultra-smooth taste.
