In 2005, he set up the bar at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall, before taking on a role as a Brand Ambassador for the Reserve Brands Group in 2007, training bartenders at some of the highest regarded bars and restaurants in the UK, including The Ritz.

There's cocktail books and then there's cocktail books. And then there's this book. This is no ordinary cocktail book, the level of detail is unrivalled and authors passion is contagious.

The Curious Bartender will teach you to make the highest quality drinks and then inspire you to make your very own!

. I am a cocktail barman and fanatical cocktail, flavour and ingredients enthusiasts. I run an events cocktail company ( [...] )But even though I read endlessly about cocktails this book kept me captivated.
I can also see how a novice home bartender and a professional can learn and be entertained by this book

Thank you.

NICK.
