The Journey of Tongue Brand Ambassador Program 

Have you always wanted to learn more about wine?
The Journey of Tongue has a passionate team with 10+ years experiences in the wine business. As a young and small team, we love supporting and growing on each other. You will have the possibility to get an insight into various processes of our business and gain experience in multiple fields. We are now surprising our clients with unique wines and special services such as events, pop ups, wine dinners and free private tastings. You will be based at the Garage Society, Shop 4, 158A Connaught Road West in Sai Ying Pung, where we rent a desk island in a co-working space. There you will have access to comprehensive office facilities.

 

Candidates of Brand Ambassador Program need to join via Zoom or in person for 4 weeks minimum to gain basic wine education. There will be homework and a test which you must achieve 80% or more to continue on as an ambassador. Those who do achieve this 80th % or above receive a free case of wine! (From the free Italian pallet).

 

This wine education is provided Free by JTHK. Samples for Tastings are provided by the Brand. After 4 weeks Training (2 hrs per session) the Ambassadors receive a Sample Bottle of the Wine so you can ‘Host’ a Sales Tasting for your family/friends/colleagues. You also receive Brand and Wine Tasting Notes to refer to – in English and Traditional Chinese.


You must run a Tasting once a week for a minimum of 10pax as a brand Ambassador and contribute to sales. If brand Ambassador don’t turn in any sales within the first month you are disqualified from the program. You are allowed to refer friends/family /colleagues to the program and receive a percentage of their sales.

 

Education – instead of the WSET Program will be by brand and varietal as per our TJOTT agenda to sell, so you will essentially become well educated in our products and brands and therefore reliant on our products to sound like an expert. Each month we will feature a new product and start a new education program so we will on-board newbies every month. Ambassadors as they improve – they won’t need to attend all the Wine Education Sessions each month as they will have sufficient education to wing it with brand and tasting notes.
