Meet the “World’s Best Bartender”…

“For me, it is a relay race. I grab that baton from Richard (Master Distiller) and have to win the race for him. It’s about respect of the Earth, the distiller, the products, the alembics, the thickness of the copper, the way it was heated, everything, otherwise you can’t make a cocktail.”
