Jessica Tantillo Barnard, Twin Liquors’ wholesale manager, and Sandra Spalding, Twin Liquors’ marketing director, have been integral parts of the Austin hospitality landscape since they landed on the scene. They met through Twin Liquors and spend the majority of their time making sure to give great attention to every community event, restaurant and bar with which they interact. Tantillo Barnard, originally from Houston, culled her passion for hospitality studying food and wine in Houston, New York and Spain, while Spalding honed her skills in Italy and Southern California. Known by some as “Twinjas,” Tantillo Barnard and Spalding have been part of the growth of Central Texas’ hospitality scene, never losing sight of the importance of taking care of the community.
