Learn the history of gin
To effectively sell a product, you need to know the product. The Gin and the Perfect Pairing course guides learners through the history of gin to the present day and to understand why gin has risen in popularity.
Do you know the origins of gin? What country consumes the most of it? And what the next big trends are likely to be? The Gin and the Perfect Pairing course will guide learners through all this and more, meaning your team will be able to share facts and information about different gin products with customers and mark your establishment as a knowledgeable expert in the field of gin.
The perfect pairing
The growing popularity of the spirit has meant that ever more inventive versions are being brought to market. Knowledge of how to pair and serve gin is extremely important in the success of serving it in your establishment. The new course helps learners to understand and describe why pairing the right fruit with the right variant enhances the flavour and the guest experience.
We’ve gained expert knowledge on the perfect serve for a variety of different gins, allowing your team to become knowledgeable and confident in their own serving skills. Our e-learning course provides video demonstrations to help understanding, which can be watched a number of times and help improve mixology skills.
Tools of the trade
