The Really Good Stuff

A place to share our industry’s good-news stories and support each other during and beyond COVID-19


First, our Australian summer experienced one of the largest, longest bushfire season’s in our nation’s history; floods, and then, a fight against the global coronavirus pandemic.

Businesses and families across Australia are going through hardship. We are doing better than some, as our bottle shops remain open and the relaxing of licensing laws in most States has given a lifeline to some bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants.

Despite it all our beloved industry has responded with agility, speed, a desperation to survive and ultimately, a willingness to serve – we all want to do our part to protect and provide for the industry and nation we know and love.

Help us share your really good stuff with the world and tell us how businesses have adapted and are doing everything they can to look after their team and customers.

Diageo creates the ‘Virtual Good Host Guide’

The ‘Virtual Good Host Guide’ serves up useful tips on how to be a great host in a virtual world. Through a series of short animations, the ‘Virtual Good Host Guide’ provides a range of top tips from encouraging hosts to pick a theme for their online celebrations to reminding people to measure their pour when making drinks. Launched on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter in May, this guide builds on Diageo’s long-standing commitment to promote moderation by helping people make positive and responsible choices about alcohol at home. This is particularly important as we all navigate the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
