If you combine the story of winning the Diageo World Class Competition in Canada, launching one successful company, and finally, becoming the first Diageo World Class Global Cocktailian, you’ve just mixed up a few of the many ingredients that make up our guest today.
Before Lauren Mote had become the Diageo Reserve & World Class Global Cocktailian and co-founder of Bittered Sling, she asked herself this question “How do I blend food and a real job together?” The path to that answer led her straight into the world of culinary creation.
Over the next two episodes, we’ll follow her journey to discover how her cherished experiences encouraged her to succeed.
On this episode, you’ll discover:
- Which book changed everything for her
- Her first experience behind the bar
- Why not winning can be equally exciting as winning
- Why her career in IT came to an end
- Her take on the Southside cocktail (and it’s with fermented pineapple!)
