One obvious trend has emerged which shapes what we’ll be drinking in the years to come—the popularity of authenticity. This real interest in knowledge and expertise is sought out by everyone nowadays—it’s knowing what we’re drinking, where it came from, and learning all about a brand’s story from an expert bartender who will deliver to us this coveted information from across the bar while handing us a well-crafted cocktail.
From bartenders educating drinkers about their fav spirits to mixologists turned social media influencers to reality shows like Drink Masters, The Ultimate Mixologist and Mixology Masters there is a thirst for knowledge unmistakable in the industry today.
