About The Instructor:

"The Brooklyn based spirits educator opened Glady's Caribbean in 2015, and soon built a following for the category in NYC among trade and consumer.  Following the publication of TIKI: Modern Tropical Cocktails (Rizzoli, 2019), Shannon has gone on to consult with a number of brands and to present seminars on the topics of rum, Tiki, bartending technique and classic cocktails at numerous venues.  Shannon's writing, recipes, and opinions have been featured in numorous publications including Imbibe, Punch.com, Vinepair, Saveur, and The New York Times." 

PREVIOUS/RETURN
EXCLUSIVE SPONSOR TESTIMONY

"Shannon has such a special way about describing rums.  Not only does she give a background on the history, she has a unique way of engaging with the class/attendees. Taking the history of rum from a 2D understanding and really making it 3D .. in a way that I’ve never heard before.  It is so interesting to hear her discussing how rum was used at inauguration parties of early presidents, with pirates, how each country has a unique flavor/history with rum. 

 

Shannon makes the learning of rum so COOL and makes those she is educating feel so connected! It is one thing to sit in a class and learn the basics, but RUM ACADEMY with Shannon takes things to a completely elevated level that creates a more comprehensive understanding, which is really awesome and makes one feel much more connected to the subject.

We truly enjoy working with Shannon and NYCE and would absolutely love to continue!"
