This week we are raising a glass to all the women in the industry out there making delicious drinks.

How did it start?
“During a semi-final cocktail competition, we got quite excited about there being more than one woman involved, so much so, we made another cocktail on the fly with an ingredient from each of our winning cocktail and entered it under our new bar ThreeAfter3.”
“To provide a space that gives visibility to women who are already doing amazing things in the industry, but also to showcase the under-represented groups and help them rise through exposure and mentoring. We want to build a platform to help women meet other women in the industry – to help overcome common challenges that as women we all face.”
What does IWD mean to you?
“It’s a day to raise awareness of the hardworking women in all industries, and we are also celebrating how far we have come!”
Look out for ThreeAfter3 making serious waves in London and beyond.
