Honouring phenomenal women in drinks – latest podcast

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Keeping the International Women’s Day thanks and praise going, this week’s episode shines a light on just a few of the many (many) phenomenal women and womxn working in the drinks industry.

The Cocktail Lovers podcast, Episode 2, Season 3 – listen here!

We sample two drinks. An Irish Whiskey created by Ireland’s first modern whiskey bonder, Louise McGuane (who we first met and interviewed for The Cocktail Lovers magazine). And a craft IPA from Master Brewer Jaega Wise over at Wild Card Brewery. Mezcal is on the menu at Doña, the bright and brilliant bar and entertainment space created by Thea Cumming and Lucia Massey. While Alice Lascelles’ excellent ‘Ten Cocktails – The Art of Convivial Drinking’ is this week’s library pick.

For this special episode, we had to have a very special, phenomenal guest and for us, Julie Reiner fits the bill perfectly. With years in the industry, covering everything from bar owner and educator, to consultant, judge and author, she’s a true inspiration for bartenders – male, female or otherwise – all around the world.

What we’re mixing:

Hanky Panky
(serves one)

Created by the late, great Ada ‘Coley’ Coleman, head bartender at the American Bar at the Savoy, London from 1903-1926

45ml gin
