FOUR Bucks pubs are looking for a fizz fanatic to become their first ever ‘Fizzician’.
The Ethorpe Hotel in Gerrards Cross and the Boot and Slipper in Amersham, along with the Shoulder of Mutton, Aylesbury, and the Crown Inn on Witherdige Lane, are looking for someone to taste test and approve their summer sparkling wines.
They are encouraging people county wide to enter after commissioning a survey which revealed a host of food and drink faux pas.
Adam Szczypior, general manager of the Shoulder Of Mutton, said: “Many of us pride ourselves on our knowledge of food and drink, but it seems we’re not as clued up as we like to think we are.
“We were particularly surprised to see that 52 per cent of Buckinghamshire residents didn’t know prosecco was a sparkling wine, given its huge surge in popularity years.
“As a result of the findings, we’re looking to find the minority of the public that do know their stuff about drink, to apply for our first ever Fizzician role.
“The lucky winner will advise on tipples for our summer festival menu – and be paid with a year’s supply of fizz.”
