Double Dutch Launches Fourth Annual Female Bartending Scholarship


Double Dutch, the producers of award-winning premium mixers and tonics, has launched its Female Bartending Scholarship Programme for the fourth consecutive year, as part of its ongoing commitment to foster upcoming female talent in the hospitality industry.

As a company led by women, Joyce and Raissa de Haas, the twin co-founders of Double Dutch, hold a special mission to celebrate women in the drinks and hospitality sector. Despite small progress being made, with women going from making up a mere 5% of CEO positions to just over 6%*, there is still a lot of work needed to overcome gender disparity in the industry. A recent Gender Pay Gap Report by Women in Hospitality, Travel & Leisure and PwC UK also showed a rise from 4.2% to 5.2%**, further cementing the need to create change and tackle underrepresentation in hospitality. 

The UK Female Bartender Scholarship Programme is designed to empower aspiring female bartenders and mixologists in the UK. Open to women aged 18 and over, and for those already working in the industry or aspiring to enter bartending, the programme encompasses professional training and personalised mentoring.
