The Drinks Trust launches new initiative, The Drinks Community

The Drinks Community is a new platform for the industry dedicated to creating connection and opportunity.

The online member platform founded by the Sommelier Wine Awards’ official charity partner, The Drinks Trust, will bring UK drinks professionals together online to network, upskill, and offer practical advice.

By bringing together the combined experience of an industry and encouraging the sharing of ideas and insight, this platform will no doubt benefit those who have been impacted over the last year by the pandemic, and the businesses they work for.

As part of the Community programme, a Founding Committee has been brought together to offer their expertise, insight and advice.

Chief Executive, Ross Carter said, “The Drinks Community will be the voice of drinks people. Together, we will create, curate and share the most relevant and exciting vocational content that will help grow your career and connect you with more people, and more opportunity, from across our vibrant industry.

“We will offer the services and opportunities that will help our people become more skilled, ultimately making our sector stronger, smarter, more connected, more resilient and more diverse. First and foremost, The Drinks Community will exist to deliver on a genuine need within the drinks industry, particularly now, at a time when community will be central to the recovery of the drinks and hospitality sectors.”
