On the Back Bar: A Bartender Podcast for The Drinks Trade

May 4, 2020

In this episode of On The Back Bar Podcast, Chris talks to Lauren Mote, the DIAGEO Reserve & World Class Global Cocktailian, co-creator of Bittered Sling Bitters, a sommelier, writer, and spirits’ judge. 

Today, Lauren spearheads the World Class Studios educational program globally and creates programming for bartenders, ambassadors, customers and consumers across 60 countries. She’s the global ambassador for the World Class program and represents the entire Reserve portfolio – the luxury arm of DIAGEO.

Lauren is the co-creator of World Class Community Week – a global, digital initiative designed to inspire, engage and communicate with the trade community around the world while spending time at home.

We talk about her personal journey through the drinks world to where she is today and some of the resources that bartenders can use to educate themselves and upskill now.
