Rose spent many years working in bars around the UK but found her true love for spirits while at Amoeba in Bristol. Her love for the community at the heart of bartending culture led to the re-establishment of the Midnight Cocktail Club, a monthly bartending competition that grew to become the biggest independent comp in the UK, while motivating young bartenders to educate themselves and excel at their craft. She was snapped up by East London Liquor Company (ELLC), becoming their Distillery Tour Manager and finally Lead Educator, cultivating a love of learning, and sharing spirits knowledge.
In 2019 Rose was appointed an Awamori Jinbner (by Okinawa’s Awamori Distillers Association) to spread her wisdom and affection for Japanese Spirits. Through shochu she became a judge for the IWSC Spirits Competition, and she can now be found on the judging panel for several categories every year.
She joined Hannah at The Mixing Class in October 2020 and has become an essential pillar of the company. Rose is the person who onboards our students, is there to answer any and all queries they may have, and is one of very few spirits educators in the world qualified to teach the elite WSET Level 3 Spirits. With a genuine passion for both the people of the industry Rose is dedicated to supporting our students in their path for professional growth, and makes friends of many of them in the process!
