Brett McCoy D'Arcy found his way to being a Jameson brand ambassador while working behind the bar in Ireland.
Having held numerous bartending positions while pursuing his studies in Drama and German at University College Cork, he learned about the role from another Jameson ambassador and the rest is history. His experience spans a variety of hospitality environments including small Irish country pubs, nightclubs, and a rooftop cocktail bar in the heart of Cork city. Brett continued to tend bar upon graduation in 2014, furthering his knowledge of spirits and the hospitality industry. Keen to travel and expand on his experience outside of Ireland, Brett landed the role of a lifetime as a Jameson Brand Ambassador in Berlin upon securing the Jameson Graduate Program.
Brett's natural affinity for collaboration and being in front of an audience positioned him well as he engaged with bartenders and consumers, educating on the Jameson brand and the Irish Whiskey category. Having spent a successful year in Berlin, the chance arose to move to the USA, and work in one of its most exciting and diverse markets, Texas.
