Zavvy – Beverage Platform Positions Itself as a Leading Content Source

SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2020 / — In less than two months, has become one of the leading content platforms for beverage professionals and aficionados, with thousands attending its livestreamed seminars and Q&As every week. 

Co-founders Federico Hernandez and Will Hoekenga didn’t expect the platform to attract viewers so rapidly. It was originally intended to serve as a livestreaming tool at Mr. Hernandez's national rum festivals. But when the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to cancel and postpone upcoming festivals in Chicago and New York, Mr. Fernandez simply invited beverage experts to begin using the platform from their homes instead.

Today, has some of the most important & current spirits leaders doing seminars &/or hosting their own channel. These channels include:
