I have more than 30 years experience in the cocktail industry as a bartender, bar owner and for the last 20 years as an international bartender trainer, training more than 40,000 of the world's bartenders.
Throughout my bartending career I have won numerous awards and titles including:
Noblesse World Mixology Champion
Vinexpo International Cocktail Competition: Grand Champion
Multiple Gold medalist: Drinks International Cocktail Challenge
2 x Guinness World Record for the 1-hour cocktail speed-mix, (196 different cocktails).
I have written 7 cocktail books:
101 Award-Winning Cocktails
The World Encyclopaedia of Cocktails
The Mammoth Book of Cocktails
2500 Cocktails: The Definitive Guide
The Cocktail Cabinet
Cocktail Mixing Made Easy.
For the last 20 years, I have travelled the world delivering training courses for bartenders and mixologists of all skill levels for many of the biggest hotel chains, nightclubs and bar groups.
I believe that everyone has the ability to create world class drinks regardless of whether they are industry professionals or enthusiastic home bartenders and accordingly, with these courses I have the opportunity to share the skills and drink mixing techniques of the very best bartenders with everyone.
