Bartender preferences and consumer tastes differ from one country to the next. But one thing that doesn’t change across borders is that bartenders are making recommendations to consumers on what brands to drink. They know the most about local markets, and they’re in the driver’s seat to push trends and influence consumer decisions.

From Mexico City to Moscow
