The founder of The Gin Fayre, Jasmine Wheelhouse, has been named a finalist in the Women’s Hospitality and Tourism Awards 2019.
Jasmine has been shortlisted alongside three other finalists in the event/ festival of the year category at the awards. She will join other women in business at a glittering awards ceremony on 16th May 2019 at the Waldorf Astoria The Caledonian, Edinburgh.
Established in February 2017, The Gin Fayre is a celebration of gin brands and producers, welcoming visitors to enjoy a selection of the finest distilleries from across the world, alongside masterclasses, cocktails, goody bags and free samples.
In its second year, the Women in Hospitality and Tourism Awards helps to recognise and increase the number of women working in senior leadership roles across the visitor economy. They also look to put the spotlight on women who had made an impact in their industry through innovation, best practice and delivering outstanding results.
Founder of The Gin Fayre, Jasmine Wheelhouse, commented:
“We’re so pleased to have been shortlisted in the awards; what a way to kick off 2019. We can’t wait to meet all the other talented finalists and celebrate the achievements of women in our industry.
“As a young female entrepreneur, opportunities in this industry is something I feel strongly about and I plan to use this shortlisting to demonstrate that with hard work and determination, anything can be achieved. I absolutely adore working in the events sector; I’ve built a successful business that hopefully both gin brands and gin enthusiasts love attending, just as much as we love organising!”
