The pro pour is a professional training aid that every alcohol serving establishment, shouldn’t have to do without! Purpose built for training, the pro pour works exceptionally well in helping bartenders achieve accuracy when pouring and is the must have tool for any bartender who is attempting to progress to the stage of free pouring. Free pouring is often only allowed by the most senior bar staff as it is a skill that can be acquired only through a lot of practice.
Manufactured from a durable plastic, with measurements in both Ml, Cl, and Oz, the professional pouring aid is perfect for establishments worldwide, as well as being designed so it sits perfectly inside a typical Boston tin – ensuring no wastage, even when you are training.The product itself certainly comes highly recommended with the World Flair Association using Beaumont’s very own Pro Pours for their worldwide grading tests!
Prior to the invention of the pro pour, bartenders would simply learn through experience or by coming up with their own means of performing pour tests. What is clear about learning from experience is that indeed you first have to experience the good and the bad before you reach that point of equilibrium – the good is obviously good, but the bad in this case would refer to an over pour or an under pour. Either way, the customer is going to be unhappy, or the bar owner will be.
Although both errors in pouring are possible, over pouring is the error that tends to happen more often than under pouring. Depending on the size of your establishment, how many bartenders you have working and how many bottles of alcohol you serve, the over pouring practice can soon add up and become rather costly. For example, if three of your five bartenders for the evening are on average over pouring by 2 millilitres a drink – and each of them serves 150 drinks on a busy evening, then you are looking at 600 millilitres (60cl) of waste – or alcohol that hasn’t been accounted for.
Even with a jigger you will often see poorly trained bartenders over pouring, so a jigger will not necessarily help you cut down on your wastage – whereas the pro pour has been proven to do so. To ensure accurate pours throughout your establishment, training with the pro pour needs to take place, or the use of measures or optics (pictured below) needs to be employed. But using optics of course could mean changing how your bar is laid if there is not space to hang the bottles up on the back bar, for example. This is why the pro pour is the best all around option.
