For Immediate Release


Gaz Regan Announces the Launch of the

Worldwide Bartender Database

A Business and Consulting Service from Regan & Shapiro that seeks to provide clients with bartender engagement, innovation, and insights.

New York, NY (Oct X, 2018) — World famous bartender and author, Gary (gaz) Regan in association with Arthur Shapiro, marketing consultant and blogger/author, have joined forces to produce an online portal dedicated to all matters across the bar. The service is geared to both the bartender community and spirit brand owners.

The Worldwide Bartender Database is designed to provide bartenders with education, career enhancement, engage in competitions, and the opportunity to work with brands. For brand owners, the effort seeks to provide a range of consulting services centered on the idea of … “If you want to know how a bartender thinks and acts, ask us.”

Gaz describes the business service this way: “Just as the name Worldwide Bartender Database suggests, we see the site as geared to the folks behind the stick who understand the business from a unique vantage point. We intend to harness their knowledge and insights to help brand owners in a range of areas. To participate, all a bartender has to do is sign up at

The database will give bartenders access to a range of opportunities to work with Regan & Shapiro to enhance their bartending skills, participate in bartender contests and promotions, for bartending assignments and brand ambassador positions around the world.

“The WWBDb is a new concept in spirits marketing and brand building,” according to Shapiro. “The projects we’ve already worked on for brand owners have included enhancing a brand’s presence on premise, finding top notch and influential bartenders, developing new cocktails, advise on new products development, and even focus groups.”

Gaz added, “The bartenders we work with, and our industry clients, both love our approach. Clients appreciate having the ears of the industry’s most important gatekeepers, and the bartenders love knowing that industry professionals value their opinions. In addition, our bartenders are delighted to have us around and have a chance to expand their careers, be heard by producers and, enjoy being in this community.”

Going to BAR17 in Chicago Next Week?

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Please stop by Booth 11233 and visit my friends at the

American Juice Company  

I’ve been serving AJC’s products at Cocktails in the Country for the past two years, and the bartenders who used them were all mighty impressed.  And I mean ALL.

Now I’m partnering with this fine company to release Gaz Regan’s Salted Espresso syrup, and it’s being debuted next week at BAR17, so pop by their booth and insist on a sample if this sounds like it might be a fit for your bar.

The Espresso Martini, of course, was the brainchild of the late, great, Dick Bradsell–the Dale DeGroff of London–and I worked with the flavor-meisters at AJC to create something a little different, but still with that strong Espresso flavor.

Gaz Regan’s Salted Espresso syrup boasts three different coffee styles (Arabica, Robusta, and Dark Roast), and in addition to the pinch of salt, we’ve also added a little vanilla, star anise, Chinese anise, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, cardamom,  and a touch of citrus zests to the mix.  I think you’re gonna like it.
