Richard Miller III is the CEO of the House of Carbonadi, overseeing brand strategy, strategic partnerships, and growth into additional markets. Miller’s professional path began in the world of football after playing for Fresno State during college, where he went on to play with different arena football teams before getting the itch to go into business on his own. Possessing a fierce natural force as an innovative thinker, he had no choice but to fulfill his destiny as an entrepreneur. Miller launched his beverage marketing career dabbling in the creation of a vitamin D water for athletes, followed by co-founding the 8 Hour Snooze, a 2oz sleep shot that was made available in GNC and 7-Eleven. With Richard’s love for beverage marketing and his fascination with the science of luxury marketing, creating a luxury spirit such as Carbonadi was inevitable.
Realizing the void in the ultra-premium vodka space and the lack of trade up options, Miller geniusly thought to incorporate Italian wheat into the beverage making process as it was unique and wildly under-utilized. With luxury in mind at all times, the idea of using rare carbonados or “Black Diamonds” for the filtration method was a perfect fit for the brand allowing the liquid spirit to specifically to be sipped and enjoyed by itself due to these innovative and game changing filtering, smoothening techniques.
When Richard is not out personally marketing the Carbonadi brand among celebrities, influencers and various industry executives, he collaborates on product development for additional brands in a myriad of fields. Although overall, he loves to relax by reading and spending time with his wife and son.
