Jan 2, 2020

"Asia is taking over. It's far more interesting in Asia than whats going on in New York right now" - Nico de Soto


Nico De Soto the 'pandan king' joins us this week to talk all about infusions, running his three award-winning bars and how he keeps organised while traveling the world. 

Nico started his career in Paris working for bars such as the Experimental Cocktail Club before he won his award in 2014 as 'most influential bartender in 2014'. 

Now he operates three bars which are Mace in New York, Kaido in Miami and Danico in Paris. 

Please enjoy!
