1. John Ennis & Matt Farrell, Graffiti Spirits Group, Liverpool & London

John Ennis & Matt Farrell, Graffiti Spirits Group, Liverpool & London

Garnering the title of Mezcal-eria (tequila’s smoky sister) is no easy feat, but they did it. El Bandito was one of the first UK bars to be awarded this status by Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal. Hidden below the Drunken Monkey restaurant on Broadgate, steps away from Shoreditch High Street station, John & Matt are converting the neighborhood to 100% Agave and Mezcal. Their menu consists of flights of three tequilas and three mezcals for those just dipping their toe in the smoky water or six different mezcals for those who want to jump right in. Don’t worry - there are margaritas on the menu - both Tommy’s and Frozen - or a Kale Mezcaleria, if you want something in the wellness category!   (FYI - El Bandito London is moving to Victory Mansion  (18 Stoke Newington High St, London N16 7PL) on 21st May.) Where you can hear me drinking next: We celebrate Whisky Month by having Simo on our program. People come from near and far to sip whiskey at the legendary Milroy’s of Soho. Find out next week how did this 30 year old become such a Whiskey aficionado in such a short time. Are you a regular listener of the Best Sips Worldwide podcast?

2. Jonathan Zammit-Tabona, Global Brand Ambassador, Langley’s Gin

Jonathan Zammit-Tabona, Global Brand Ambassador, Langley’s Gin

As Brand Ambassador for Langley’s Gin, he can finally embrace his heritage; the brand strives to be quintessentially English and for the discerning & sophisticated. Made from a single distillation in a 1960-English-produced copper pot in Langley Green, UK, it couldn’t be more English. Thanks to the hard work and effort of Jonathan and the whole team, they’re already in twenty markets and selling Englishness all around the world.   Where you can hear me drinking next: John, Paul, George, and Ringo aren’t the only Liverpudlians to set their sights on conquering the world. Our next guest, John Ennis, has come to town with an LP full of Tequila. His bar, El Bandito, was one of the first UK bars to be awarded ‘Mezcaleria’ status by Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal and now lucky London has an out-post all its own!

3. How to make winning a bartending competition look easy!

How to make winning a bartending competition look easy!

Superlatives are needed when describing our next guest, Aidan Bowie,  and his place of employment, Dandelyan, in London. World Class Diageo UK Bartender of 2016, Class Magazine’s Best Bar in the UK, Best Hotel Bar and Best Drinks Menu for their Modern Botany theme as well as one for Aidan as the Bartender of the Year, and the list goes on and on. Thank goodness for us, he got behind the bar after completing his studies in civil engineering. A Scot by birth, he won the first competition he entered for Auchentoshan Single Malt Whisky. Now, as his year as the World Class Diageo UK Bartender comes to a close, he sits down with me to discuss how he made it to the top of the shelf. Where you can hear me drinking next: Next episode, I venture to Menorca to see how Mahon Gin is different from pretty much every other gin in the world, and why, after one visit there, I still can’t stop drinking their national drink, the Pomada!

4. How to make a 600 year old recipe post-modern

How to make a 600 year old recipe post-modern

  Download the audio file Alexandre Le Grand could teach us all a lesson or two on brand awareness. Lesson 1 - find a 300 year old recipe. Lesson 2 - remake it for today’s palate, Lesson 3 - Market the hell out of it. His first trick was copyrighting every aspect of Bénédictine - the recipe, the bottle, the label. He even created a Palais to go with his liqueur, producing it within a museum open to everyone to visit if they happened to be in Fécamp, France. A marketing genius and it all happened in the 1800’s. I visited the Palais Benedictine to see for myself what Monsieur Le Grand had created. Today’s guest Yolande De Bueil, the Histoire de Maison, is here to give us a quick history lesson on the house that Monsieur Le Grand built. One thing wasn’t invented in the 1800s and that was mixology. Marc Jean, head bartender for Hotel Normandy Barriere and founder of the Bénédictine Mixology Workshop, is also on hand to reveal that Bénédictine is not just for sipping.   WHERE YOU CAN HEAR ME DRINKING NEXT: Next week, we head east, that’s East London as in the East London Liquor Company. Mikey Pendergast, not only one of the founding members but also the East London Liquor Company’s official Brand Ambassador is here to regale us with stories of archeology, neurobiology, and the most important mixology.

5. How to get from Romania to Norway in one short lifetime

How to get from Romania to Norway in one short lifetime

Some guests are super chatty and some take a little work to get going. Our guest today, Adrian Pudleschak, was definitely in the second camp, not that he didn’t have loads to say. I think he just wanted to see if I could get it all out of him. I did and it was as thrilling as I knew it would be. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but Adrian has worked on farms in England, Rome as an electrician, and bars in Edinburgh. Now he is off to the tiny island of Vaeroy in Norway to make alcohol from small flowers. I don’t think there is anything he can’t do. Check out my Cocktail of the Week at the end of the podcast to see how you can make yourself Adrian's Simply Clever!     Where you can hear me drinking next: London’s Dalston is filling up with bars, but there is only one Ray’s. Dave Miller, the spirit-ual guru behind this iconic bar is our guest for this 50th episode of Best Sips Podcast. Come and celebrate with us next week!

7. How to make a daiquiri Hemingway would drink

How to make a daiquiri Hemingway would drink

First study English Literature, then move to London and then visit Cuba - at least that’s what our guest today did before making me the Daiquiri of my dreams. Dave Miller, General Manager of Ray’s Bar in London, reveals how one phone call changed the course of his life. From a tiny town in Scotland, Dave went from making Sex on the Beach to our cocktail of the week in one of London’s hippest bars. As an English Literature major, he had visions of writing that novel or working in publishing. After one glimpse into the Bonfire of Vanities’ lifestyle of wearing sneakers on the subway to being chained to a desk, he never doubted his life choice again. Check out my Cocktail of the Week at the end of the podcast to see how you can make Dave's Motor City Rum Ensemble! Where you can hear me drinking next: I hope you loved every bit of the first 50 episodes of Best Sips Podcast. We are taking a bit of a break for the summer, so you can catch up on the last 49. When we return on September 5, we’ll have a few surprises for you and episodes with Bénédictine, East London Liquor Company, The Gin Foundry, and many many more!

8. How to celebrate Independence Day just right!

How to celebrate Independence Day just right!

It’s tough to imagine our next guest going to work in tails and pinstripe trousers at Fortnum & Mason in their Wine and Spirits department, and on his gap year no less. Now, in his new role as Global Brand Ambassador for Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Tom Vernon can be a bit more casually dressed. Of course, when he’s rustling up a few Mint Juleps at the Kentucky Derby every year, his glad rags emerge! Tom is no stranger to Woodford Reserve, he’s been their UK Brand Ambassador for five years. Now as Global Brand Ambassador, his playing field has grown bigger. For someone whose first cocktail was a Manhattan, this job is a dream. With Declan McGurk, now Bar Manager of the Savoy Hotel’s American Bar, as a mentor, young Tom was bound for glory. Whilst in Leeds and Manchester, cities that turn out some of the greats in bartending, Tom learned his trade so well that it would eventually bring him right back to where it all started, with the Manhattan and the spirit it can’t do without, Bourbon. Where you can hear me drinking next: Next week, we go on holiday to Portugal, more specifically to Quinta do Lago in the Algarve, home to the luxury resort Four Seasons Fairways. We’ll be joined by the bar staff who showed me the coolest drink made with gin I have ever seen. Are you a regular listener of the Best Sips Worldwide podcast?

9. How to make your grandmother's liqueur into a modern-day cocktail!

How to make your grandmother's liqueur into a modern-day cocktail!

Jereon’s grandmother came up with a plan - keep making elderflower liqueur and no one in her family could stay away. Needless to say it worked, worked so well that her grandson took up the helm and made all of Belgium want it as well. Little by little, RoomeR has grown from a small cottage industry, selling 200 bottles a month, to now producing over 100,000 bottles a year. Not only does it tastes delicious, but it couldn’t be prettier. Pure white elderflower petals dance around in the golden liqueur within its iconic, test-tube like bottle! Jereon and his partner, Tine, have worked hard to make RoomeR a socially responsible workplace, employing those who might not be able to work otherwise. They are dedicated to making their company as green as possible - no preservatives are used, their boxes and crates are recyclable and the bottles are returnable. With one sip, you are not only part of the RoomeR family, but also helping to change the world!   Where you can hear me drinking next: I’ll be spending the American holiday July 4th at Imbibe Live - the UK’s most important drinks conference and what will we be drinking there? Why, Woodford Reserve Bourbon of course! Tom Vernon, their Global Brand Ambassador, is with me on that very independent of holidays to drink that very American of spirits!
