GUINNESS Malaysia ended their Perfect Pour training programme today by announcing four top bartenders for an all-expenses paid trip to the home of GUINNESS, Dublin.
The announcement is the perfect icing on the pint after a month-long journey with GUINNESS Brand Ambassador Cian Hulm who travelled to 8 states training participating bartenders to bring home 16 finalists to compete at the Kuala Lumpur GUINNESS Perfect Pour Finale.
Hailing from the home of GUINNESS – the legendary St James’s Gate in Dublin – Hulm is recognised as one of the foremost experts on GUINNESS in the world and leads a team which travels the globe sharing knowledge on all things GUINNESS, while ensuring the perfect quality standards are carried out everywhere.
The GUINNESS Perfect Pour campaign aims to further establish the quality of GUINNESS Draught amongst HEINEKEN Malaysia’s trade partners by means of a nationwide training programme run for bartenders, covering over 180 outlets and 640 bar staff this year.
Through the programme, GUINNESS goes further to prove its quality amongst consumers as they rove the GUINNESS Perfect Pour truck around the Klang Valley to allow consumers the chance to experience what goes into a GUINNESS and how to master the 2-part pour that is unique to GUINNESS Draught.
Cian Hulm, GUINNESS Brand Ambassador, said,
“It’s been such an experience being here with all the bartenders across Malaysia – I’m so proud to see that across the globe, the drive and passion to produce quality GUINNESS Draught for the end consumers that I’ve been witnessing with each and everyone of them has been consistent throughout and that’s truly something I can say I’m honoured to be able to witness and take pride in.”
GUINNESS Draught is a beer Made of More – more craft, more anticipation, and more satisfaction in every glass because GUINNESS Draught is nitrogenated, uniquely made with barley roasted to a state of perfection, and uses the same strain of yeast that legendary founder, Arthur Guinness, has been using from 260 years ago.
Hence, it is the beer of choice for those who will never accept anything less.
Julie Kuan, Senior Brand Manager for GUINNESS Malaysia, said
“GUINNESS Draught has been able to maintain its status as the world’s no. 1 stout because we only use the finest quality ingredients, and a unique ‘two-part pour which is our guaranteed method to deliver the perfect pint.
“Hence why, as a brand, we’ve made it a point to ensure bars up and down the country are consistently trained on how to deliver the perfect GUINNESS.”
