Shaker® was conceived by Adam Freeth in 2001 as part of a BA and MSc in Business Management and Entrepreneurship, coupled with his bartending exploits throughout Europe. Our first training program (the International Bartenders Course â€“ IBC) was delivered to a budding group of five in the winter of 2001, followed by our first events service at a small house party in Gloucestershire.
Today Shaker has evolved into a globally respected authority on bartender training and cocktail culture. Shaker now operates two core divisions Shaker BarSchool® and Shaker Events training thousands of bartenders and consulting with some of the largest spirit brands in the world with branches in Birmingham, London, Cape Town and Johannesburg.
“ We like to think of our business as a cocktail of services supporting the needs of the ever evolving hospitality industry. ”
