Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs

The Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs is a special section of the Chaîne, whose objectives are the promotion of good wines, brandy, liqueurs, spirits, and to get them appreciated throughout the world.

L’Ordre Mondial is first and foremost a part of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. It is under the authority of an Echanson whose activities are supervised by the Bailli Délégué.

The Ordre Mondial focuses on the enjoyment, the study and appreciation of the skill of developing and crafting fine beverages.

The events in Thailand organised by the Ordre Mondial are, generally, less formal than those of the Chaîne. The primary focus of an Ordre Mondial dinner in Bangkok is definitely the exquisite wines and their appreciation. The tastings are accompanied with the usually very educational and passionate explanations of our Echanson, while food is playing a supporting but nonetheless a very important role.

The members of the Ordre Mondial include professionals, working in the drinks sector, mostly wine importers and ‘amateurs’. Accordingly, members are classified in the same way as the Chaîne as ‘professional’ or ‘amateur’ (non-professional). Any active member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs can become a member of the Ordre Mondial, provided that they are proposed by a member of the Ordre Mondial. Membership in the Ordre Mondial also requires a separate membership and subscription payment
