Camper English Voted 39th Most Influential Person in the Global Drinks Industry 2019

Drinks International Magazine today announced the result of a new list they created, the Bar World 100. The list is a ranking of the 100 most influential people in the global drinks industry, under the direction of DI editor Hamish Smith. (Smith and I worked closely on the World's 50 Best Bars list for many years.)

I'm delighted to have been named the 39th most influential person on the inaugural 2019 Bar World 100 list. Hooray!

Camper 39 Most Influential

Though not mentioned in the writeup, about 90% of my "influence" is probably due to all my research and writing about clear ice

The full list is below.

Tooting my own horn a bit more, being a writer on this list is a distinct honor. Writers and authors above me include David Wondrich, Jared Brown, Jim Meehan, Dave Broom, and Jeff Berry - though probably half the other people on the list have a book coming out within two years. And as a journalist, well, I'm feeling pretty great about my ranking. 

Of course, lists are just lists and hopefully nobody on it (or not on it) takes too seriously their placement. I do work my butt off and it's wonderful to be recognized. 

So, congratulations to me and to everyone who works hard in the booze industry not only to cash a check and party hearty, but to take something they love and try to make it better.
