Inspired by Charles H Baker's 1939 inspirational travel drinks book Around the world with Jigger Beaker and Flask, Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands (BBFB) are back with their 3rd year-long UK tour of industry workshops and seminars. Building on the success of the events in 2017 and 2018 this year the theme is the holy trinity of bartending; Hospitality, Creativity and Productivity.
BBFB's aim is to educate and share knowledge and ideas in an entertaining way, just as Baker did in his seminal work. Jigger Beaker Glass brings his book to life with modern content inviting thought-provoking leaders from within the drinks industry and outside to take over some of the UK's most prestigious bars where they will share their wealth of experience and knowledge to an audience that could include you.
The sessions reflects their three pillars of education:
Jigger – a practical skills set presentation
Beaker – a measure of success
Glass – a showcase of skill through an interactive practical task
