Leading global beverage business Diageo is set to launch a new voice-activated smart bar cart in Australia.
The innovation seamlessly integrates the Amazon Alexa smart speaker into a stylish, physical bar cart and is designed to provide at-home assistance to those who wish to learn how to make cocktails.
The Bar Cart is very easy to use and is activated by asking Alexa to ‘open the bar cart’ – which is a free feature as long as an internet source is connected.
The new technology then takes users through a menu of options to determine which spirits they have at home to use as the base for the cocktail, while also providing inspiration for those looking for creative support.
An official launch date and the price of the chic cart is yet to be announced.

Once launched the brand is expecting the exciting new product to be a hit among customers, as according to research 73 per cent of Australians say they are not confident in their ability to make mixed drinks or cocktails but are eager to earn.
Others who were surveyed admitted to enjoying cocktails while out at bars and restaurants, but wish it was easier to recreate the experience at home.
Even though the Bar Cart is yet to be launched, users can still use the creative feature through Alexa.
