In the last number of years our Ambassadors have played a pivotal role educating our US trade partners on our product and helping to distinguish the brand from its rivals in a highly competitive market place”.
Following an intensive training programme, those selected will embark on a series of marketing assignments in such cities as New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Philadelphia and Chicago. The team will focus on building brand awareness for Tullamore Dew among trade partners, promoting the whiskey and communicating its distinctive heritage and blend to bar managers and local influencers.
