Meet the Team

Ambrosia Borowski
Executive Beverage Director Director Of Cider Operations Northman Cider Co

Ambrosia first fell in love with cider about 12 years ago while drinking scrumpy out of dusty old kegs in English pubs. Since that first taste, she has been on the hunt for unique and tasty ciders, finding her home at The Northman. This year Ambrosia is proud to announce the launch Northman Cider Co. in Chicago.


Her industry career started 16yrs ago in the kitchen. After a few years behind the stove and finishing up culinary school, she jumped behind the bar and hasn't left since. Passionate about education through inebriation, she teaches spirit courses in the city and loves to hold class at the bar.


She is a judge at The Great Lakes International Cider Competition and has leant her palette to the Beverage Tasting Institute. She is well traveled across a unique booze landscape, combining an inventive mind and adventurous spirit to create a special beverage experience for our guests. A deep passion for cider shines through her extensive knowledge of processes and product. Away from The Northman, she can be found foraging apples around the city, making cider at home, and traveling by bicycle.
