Rose Brookman

Rose started her career in hospitality working in bars across the UK, but found her love for spirits at Amoeba Craft Beer & Cocktail Bar in Bristol.  She became passionate about competition bartending which led to the re-establishment of the Midnight Cocktail Club, a monthly peer judged bartending competition that grew exponentially to be the biggest independent competition in the UK; training and pushing young bartenders to learn and excel at their craft. 

Rose moved to the other side of the bar where she worked in brand sales across the UK, before becoming a Distillery Tour Manager and finally a Spirit Educator, where her passion for education grew through industry brand training, consumer tours, and teaching the WSET course. 

More recently Rose has fallen in love with Japanese spirits studying to become an "Awamori Jinbner" as part of a scheme by the Japanese Tax Agency to help encourage global recognition of the spirit category, as well as being an IWSC judge for the shochu category. 

She joined Hannah Lanfear at The Mixing Class in October 2020, having a genuine passion for both the people of the industry and education within it; Rose aims to help those on the course to grow into future stars, pushing the category forward as a whole.
