This morning I was clicking through my emails and came across a post by Liquor.com mentioning an article written by Greg D. of GreatDrams.com. Short but simple list of whiskey terms that everyone - especially service staff and bartenders - should know inside and out.
Trade Community - if your staff cannot confidently define and use these terms then it might be time for a review and training session. Fall is nearly upon us and whiskey sales are increasingly strong. The Guest Community knows more and more about these categories, and we need to be sure our staff team members are on point with their basic product knowledge as well as product wisdom.
Below is the list from Greg D., and you can read the original Liquor.com posting by clicking here.
