Jameson Irish Whiskey, hosting the hosts

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


For the global bar community being in isolation doesn’t have to mean being isolated

It’s an extremely difficult time for people all around the world and for those involved in the hospitality industry it’s also a challenging one. The spread of the Coronavirus has forced bars, restaurants, hotels and nightclubs in countless countries to close their doors.

And the people who are the lifeblood of this usually vibrant industry find themselves parted from their work and in turn from the community they love.

Jameson Irish Whiskey though is determined to continue the spirit of community it’s always shared with bars and bar people as it opens the doors to Jameson Hosts Online – a very special virtual space.

Jameson Hosts Online – a place for the bar community now

Jameson has always believed in supporting the global bar community by connecting them to each other to drive new ideas and opportunities. Now more than ever, in these uncertain times, this community needs a place to meet, which helps them to stay strong and to look to a brighter future. This is exactly what Jameson Hosts Online is all about.

This new digital space is where the bar community can come together to connect, learn and share. It’s where they can get wellbeing support, enhance their technical knowledge and collaborate.

No matter what level of expertise, background or geographical location, each and every member of the global bar community is welcome to join Jameson Hosts Online. Moreover they can benefit from the comfort of their own home through exclusive video content created and shared by exceptional hosts from around the world.

This is when an extensive global bar community including bartenders, bar owners, brewers, floor staff and more will be invited to a three day festival at Midleton Distillery, the home of Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Like Jameson Hosts Online the festival will invite attendees to host workshops where they will be able to share knowledge and expertise with fellow participants and inspire new ideas among the bar community.

And there will be the opportunity to immerse themselves in the production of Jameson Irish Whiskey with exclusive access to the Old Midleton Distillery and Blending Lab at Midleton.
