The Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs (OM) is a specialty group within the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs for those who share a common interest and passion for expanding their knowledge and experience of wines, spirits, liqueurs, beer and other specialty crafted beverages, including cocktails. The goal of this group is “to promote the enjoyment, appreciation and knowledge of fine beverages from around the world.”
Where the typical Chaîne event focuses on the enjoyment of a complete dining experience with fine wine pairings, the typical OM event trains its focus on wines and beverages paired with appropriate dishes. OM events tend to be a little more casual in nature, with a fun yet informative focus on advancing better understanding and appreciation of wines and spirits. Examples of typical OM events include a custom mixology event that teaches the art of the cocktail, a door-to-door exploration of local craft breweries, or a fine wine tasting with custom canapés served with each wine.
Any active member of the Chaîne can become a member of the OM, which requires a separate membership and subscription payment.
