Their aim is to educate and share knowledge and ideas in an entertaining way, just as Baker did in his seminal tomb, Around The World With Jigger, Beaker and Flask, in which he writes:

"Between these covers is first fruit of twenty-one years of international field work in club, hotel and private society around much of the known world." "You'll find them all here, all the famous ones, and more besides that are now accepted and granted brief through long local usage and tradition. Here are the Raffles Gin Sling from far off Singapore, Seaholm and Gerber's Tiger's Milk from the historic Wogons-Lits in the Peking Legation Quarter. The proven Gimlet of India and South China the unpredictable Balloon Cocktail from Calcutta's smartest restaurant named Firpo's; the truly magnificent Million Dollar as mixed by the genius Saito at the Imperial in Tokyo; the impeccable Gin Fizz Spécial of Aziz Effendi, monitor of the one and only Winter Palace at Loucqsor, in Egypt - yes, all these are here."

"All of these are here, and many many more of varying size and type together with authentic ways of manufacturing bitters, syrups, stone bottle ginger beers, which have been well proven by tests of time and peoples."

It's a compelling offering and a great read. BBFB are set to bring Charles H Baker's book to life with modern content as 11 of the industry's most thought-provoking leaders takeover some of the UK's most prestigious bars to share their wealth of experience and knowledge to an audience that could include you.

The Jigger, Beaker, Glass Tour kicked off in Birmingham on 11th April 2017. The next event is in Manchester on 16th May, and will be followed by a series of events in major cities.
