Dandelyan, LondonSuperlatives 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!
