I have more than 25 years experience in the cocktail industry as a bartender, bar owner and for the last 15 years as an international bartender trainer, training more than 30,000 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 medals at the Drinks International Cocktail Challenge and have twice held the Guinness World Record for the 1-hour cocktail speed-mix, (196 different cocktails).
I have written 5 cocktail books: The World Encyclopaedia of Cocktails, The Mammoth Book of Cocktails, 2500 Cocktails: The Definitive Guide, The Cocktail Cabinet and Cocktail Mixing Made Easy.
For the last 15 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 this course, I have the opportunity to share the skills and drink mixing techniques of the very best bartenders with everyone.
