Each and every member of the collective that provides their insight is paid for their time and Drinktank takes 0% of that fee.

Drinktank has a vision of progressive collaboration between bartenders and brands, where a bartender’s expertise and insights are respected and paid for and brands reduce risk and increase engagement and return.

What is Drinktank?
Drinktank is the world’s first global intelligence network for the drinks industry and exists to close
the gap between brands and bartenders to progress the industry.
A global collective of drinks industry influencers across prestige and volume accounts, from London to Hong Kong, New York to Copenhagen, Drinktank unites bartenders and barthinkers from around the world to provide a unique set of insights and intelligence to inform the global drinks market.
Drinktank curates and delivers intelligence for brands. Working with brand teams and their agencies, tailor-made questionnaires are created to test concepts and measure trade-forward brand activities; whether it’s new product development, trend forecasting, positioning feedback, advocacy programme ratings, we ensure that the right brief is matched to the right bartenders and barthinkers around the world.
How do Drinktank briefs work?
Drinktank develops tailormade questionnaires, closing the gap between brands and bartenders.
Brief overviews explain the theme and criteria of upcoming questionnaires that will be going live on our app. In the app, you can opt in to take part in a brief based on your location, role and interest in the subject or brand.
You will then be selected by Drinktank to take part. Once you’ve completed the questionnaire you will submit an invoice via the payments function. Once this is complete, you will receive payment for your time and insights.
The Drinktank app simplifies the process, and you will receive notifications at every step to ensure you’re guided through from start to finish - from opt-in to payment!
How often will a new brief go live?
There isn’t a set number of briefs that go live, it is based on when brands are ready to request insights on a project or brand. We believe your experience and insights are invaluable to our industry, which is why we pay for your time and we want to make this standard industry-wide.
How much does Drinktank take from a bartender’s fee?
Drinktank makes zero profit from bartender fees, bartenders receive 100% of their fee. Drinktank charges a separate amount for the management and analysis of the insights – so bartenders are paid for their time and we are paid for our time. Easy.
When and how do I get paid?
Once you have successfully completed a questionnaire, head to ‘payments’. Here, you will submit an
including your home address and full bank account information. Once this has been submitted, you will
paid automatically via Stripe.
