he Australian Drinks Festival is
done and dusted for another
year, and it was a great event
all round. And while it was fabulous
to see so many industry members
in attendance and trial some truly
amazing products from all facets of the
industry, what was really great were
the speakers – specifically Iain Griffiths
from Mr Lyan Ltd and the amazing
panel we put together from some of
the knowledgeable folks in the industry.
I know I’ve spoken about it before
but the importance of sustainability
cannot be undersold. And Iain’s talk
on how to make small changes in your
own bar was truly inspirational.
But what also came up was career
sustainability. Before we put together
the speaking program I put some
feelers out in the industry and what I
heard back, overwhelmingly, was that
bartenders want advice on how to stay
in the game long term.
No longer are people dipping in and
out of the industry – they are looking
to create long term plans that see
them staying in the bar world. Creating
a legitimate career trajectory that will
see them through the next 20 years of
their working life.
Unsurprisingly, the session was the
biggest one of the entire weekend,
with loads of bartenders turning
up to hear what they should and –
perhaps more importantly – should not
There were a lot of expletives (over
the loudspeaker no less, love your
work team) and the advice ranged
from the obvious things that everyone
ignores – wear better shoes dammit –
to the profound – you are a brand and
you have to manage your social media
profile like you would an actual brand.
I cannot thank the panel members
enough for giving up their Sunday
afternoon to come and speak, you are
all amazing people.
Last issue an incorrect tasting note was published for the ultra-premium vodka VDKA 6100,
it should have read:
VDKA 6100 is an ultra-premium vodka from New Zealand which recently received a Gold
(highly-recommended with 91 points) at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2016. VDKA 6100 is
sourced from the pristine natural environment of Reporoa, and fermented using fresh seasonal
whey and a hand-cultivated strain of yeast. It is then finely distilled and filtered being finished
by blending with natural New Zealand spring water for an unrivalled crisp clean taste. The result
is a smooth and distinctive vodka with an unctuous mouth feel and hints of citrus and pepper.
