About the programme
The Gin Ambassador was proudly launched in response to the huge global popularity of The Whisky Ambassador – our sister programme and the world’s first accredited whisky training.
It’s no secret what a powerful comeback gin has made in recent years, and rightly so, as one of history’s most iconic spirits. With such a vast variety of flavour profiles, distillation methods and serve styles now gracing shelves across the world, it’s safe to say this juniper gem is truly here to stay, following a remarkable journey through the ages.
The Gin Ambassador training programme has been expertly designed to teach you all you need to know about this famously versatile drink, by those who know it best. Whether you’re a hospitality professional or simply an avid gin fan, it is the ultimate way to mark the revival of a truly legendary spirit.
