The annual Bartender Scholarship Programme has been set up to empower aspiring female bartenders and mixologists in the UK – to foster up-and-coming talent through a line-up of unique educational sessions. Open to women aged 21 and over who are already working within the industry or are looking to break into bartending, it will encompass professional training and bespoke mentoring.

Double Dutch is partnering with several industry icons who will take on important roles as mentors, offering expert, one-to-one training and sharing their knowledge, insights and advice.
