William Grant ambassadors go unwrapped

COCKTAILS, creativity and career development will be some of the themes explored in a new series of online masterclasses from drinks company William Grant & Sons.

The Unwrapped Sessions will each be hosted by one of the company’s brand ambassadors and will provide bartenders and other hospitality professionals with insights and skills to help them develop their careers.

The first sessions two session take place tomorrow (9th July) when Reyka brand ambassador Fab Latham hosts ‘Adventurivity Origins’ and Alwynne Gwilt, brand ambassador for The Balvenie, hosts ‘De-stress and be maltful’.

“Unwrapped is essentially an educational expression of the William Grant & Sons ambassador team’s extra-curricular interests,” said Latham.

“It’s great to meet the [brand ambassadors] behind some of the most awarded brands in the world, find out about the topics they’re passionate about, and also hear from special guests whose expertise knows no bounds. There’s something for everyone and our new format of bite size episodes means you can dip in and out of different topics on the go, wherever you are, at any time of day.”
