We are celebrating World Bartender Day with the release of a series of training videos and interviews from top UK bartenders.
Three of the most acclaimed names in the UK bartender community reveal how they started in bartending (including a few embarrassing fails!) along with top advice for people looking to get into the industry.
Serena Carrino, head mixologist at Florattica Rooftop London
Reah Owen, bartender at Project Halcyon and the youngest person ever to be nominated for the rising star award at Manchester Bar Awards
Sonia Elia, Franklin & Sons’ Brand Ambassador
They share some fun signature serves, from the Cecil Beaton bar, at the Theatre Royal including Fourteen Days – a long refreshing, herbaceous and tart cocktail with Greek influence – a signature serve of Project Halcyon, a creative Manchester bar using an in-house distillery and laboratory.
