In honor of Women’s History Month Flaviar and RNDC have partnered together to sponsor the three-part podcast Powered By Women. The mini-series features interviews with three dynamic industry leaders and is hosted by New York-based bartender and liquor consultant Joanna Carpenter.

On the first episode, Sly Cosmopoulos, the Director of Beverage Marketing at Republic National Distributing Company, shares her journey from the corporate world to bartending to spirits education. She also talks about her latest project, a cocktail book for Women’s History Month.

RNDC is raising funds to support rising females in the industry with a mentorship program and scholarship contributions to Women of the Vine & Spirits Foundation. Please help the cause by bidding on an NFT designed by artist Chelsy Escalona of either Fawn Weaver, CEO and Founder of Uncle Nearest, Heidi Scheid, EVP at Scheid Family Wines or Elisa Gutiérrez, Vice President of Operations at Casa Herradura. The highest bidder will receive a mentorship experience with the NFT’s pioneer muse along with a signed bottle from their brand and the NFT.


Please sip responsibly. This article is produced in sponsorship with one of our spirited partners.
