We’ve gone unashamedly female-focused in this episode. Why? Because there are amazing women doing great things every single day in the world of hospitality (and also, yesterday was International Women’s Day).
Our first product is Appleton Estate 8-Year-Old Reserve Rum created by the legend that is Master Blender Joy Spence. That’s followed by Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru Murcian Lemon Gin, conceived by Dr Anne Brock at Laverstoke Mill.
Mallory O’Meara’s award-winning Girly Drinks – A World History of Women and Alcohol is our book of choice and we check out Giulia Cuccurullo’s first class drinks and five star hospitality at the Artesian Bar in London.
Last but by no means least, we head over to Miami for a chat with the powerhouse that is Christine Wiseman to talk about how she’s kicking some serious ass as beverage Director at Bar Lab Hospitality.
