Former Diageo World Class manager Dan Dove has launched a talent agency dedicated to bartenders, considered to be the first of its kind in the industry.
The Global Bartending Talent Agency has been developed to connect drinks professionals with luxury brands, consumers and each other.
Those who are part of the agency will offer services such as cocktail and menu innovation, liquid research and development, competition judging, TV presenting, social media campaigns and more. Each individual will have a detailed profile, providing clear insight into their skill sets and attributes.
Dan said: “In the current climate and the difficulties that the hospitality industry are facing today, Global Bartending will open doors to talent allowing them to explore new paths in their career using their skill sets they have learnt over the years, bringing them new and exciting opportunities.”
The talent across Global Bartending includes an array of world-renowned bartenders and owners to TV personalities from across the globe, including Matt Whiley, Best European Mixologist 2019 and owner of Scout, currently ranked #28 in the World’s 50 Best Bars.
Matt said: “Global bartending will play a massive role for trade, consumer and bartender. It’s vital within the industry to place people in the right creative and working spaces and Dan and the team are incredible at this.”
