An ever-growing and updated list of women working in Asia’s alcohol industry. By Holly Graham.
Despite the ever-growing collective of incredibly talented women in today’s bar industry, there still remains a lack of female representation in competitions, awards, judging panels, editorials, masterclasses and the like. Inspired by a project I learned about from the women’s bar community in Australia and in honour of International Women’s Day, it seemed like the right time to create DRiNK’s own list of female bar industry professionals in Asia.
After calling for women to share their professional roles and receiving an overwhelming response of over 250 names, the list has now become a reality – a living, breathing being that proves there are no more excuses. As a fellow woman working in the alcohol industry, I hope to see it continue to grow, evolve and serve as a valuable resource to our community. The original list was created in March 2019 and is regularly updated.
If you would like your name added to the list, or if your entry needs updating or correcting, please email me on holly(at)drinkmagazine.asia stating your full name, current position, venue and location. Must be based in Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Japan, Taiwan, Macau, Korea, Indonesia, Myanmar, India or Laos and working in the alcohol industry, inclusive of bartenders, bar owners, bar floor staff, distributors, writers, journalists, brand reps/ambassadors, sommeliers, brewers, distillers etc. Let’s keep building the list and lifting fellow women in the industry.
