Finally a passion is getting the coverage it deserves!
29 January 2016 | by jonnobirchallSee all my reviews

In my view this is a small piece of the snowball that is turning into an avalanche within the hospitality industry. Food has for many years absolutely dominated the screens and articles across the world yet just as much effort and even more patience in time goes into making that favorite tipple we all have in our minds. Centuries go into creating just one bottle of spirit through aging, perfecting production methods and family run distilleries harking back to the golden ages of the hospitality industry. This film is a big step in the right direction, casting a new light on those behind the bar rather than what people see spilling onto the streets from their local dive. There are many respected and influential names in Hey Bartender that revolutionized the Cocktail scene. It's good to see something like this look at both ends of the spectrum by having the two main focal points as a small town bar and another that's won best bar in the world. Google TV-shows or films about proper bar tending and you'll struggle beyond Tom Cruise in 'Cocktail, this and Boozed up Abroad'. Why though when this side of hospitality has so much to offer in the same respects that the food side does. Lovely camera-work and well conveyed at the new wave for the Spirit serving industry.
