Miles Muir


Coming from one of Auckland’s best Cocktail Bars, Miles traded in his shakers at the end of 2022 to join the Black Pineapple Sales team. As your go-to Industry Drinks and Corporate-Gifting Liaison, Miles will be the first one to tell you it’s both his job and his pleasure to cater to your every need.

Miles had his first “Wow!” drinks-moment at home in his kitchen meticulously building his first ever Whiskey Sour. After a couple false-starts and a few cracked eggs, that drink’s silky smoothness flipped a switch in Miles’ brain and he’s been obsessed with Classic Cocktails ever since. Now you can catch him crusading to share that same joy with everyone- one delicious drink at a time.
