The designer of the program – The Whisky Ambassador and Jo Graham.

The Gin Ambassador is the sister training programme of the globally acclaimed Whisky Ambassador, whose growing popularity now sees it operate in 33 countries, across six continents. The organisation is founded by Jo Graham who rallied together a group of industry experts and created The Whisky Ambassador programme from scratch. The program soon gained accreditation by both the BIIAB and CPD Standards – the first ever whisky training to be recognised by an awarding body – and has been delivered, in all its immersive, interactive glory, to over 4000 professionals and enthusiasts across the world. The Gin Ambassador follows in the footsteps of its whisky namesake – spreading similarly expert knowledge about one of the world’s most acclaimed spirits.
