World’s richest booze billionaires

9. Andres Santo Domingo

World ranking: #348

Country: United States

Worth: $4.7bn

Age: 39

Business: Andres received his riches following the death of his father Julio Mario Santo Domingo in 2011, passing down a massive stake in beer giant SABMiller to his sons, Alejandro and Andres Santo Domingo.

Last year AB InBev completed its merger with SAB Miller – a deal worth $79 billion. SAB Miller and AB InBev agreed the multi billion merger in November, with SABMiller shareholders accepting AB InBev’s cash offer of £45 ($59) a share, valuing the London-listed firm at around £79 billion ($104bn). The new company will be called Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, (AB InBev), effectively ending the SAB Miller name. The Santo Domingo family now holds a massive stake in the newly formed company.

Andres graduated from Brown University in 2000 and founded small-time record label Kemado Records two years later. His wife, Lauren, is a contributing editor at Vogue and the founder of Moda Operandi, an online retailer that lets customers buy runway clothes before they land in stores.
