Get To Know Andy
Where does your love for mixology come from?

I love cooking, but I also really love making people feel welcome. I felt cocktails were the perfect way to fit both those things: playing with flavours and creating delicious combos all whilst getting to know and take care of my customers.

What's your favourite cocktail?

I love a good Manhattan but my guilty pleasures have to be Mojitos and Espresso Martinis. Delicious!

Which are the best coffees to make mocktails with?

The Ristretto has an amazingly good roast. When you drink it, or even smell it, you feel like you’re driving through a coffee roasting warehouse. I also love a good Chai Tea Latte, it has an amazing balance of spice, but with winter and Christmas on the cards, flavour of the month for me has to be the Chococino: that’s a seriously good winter warmer.

What’s the coolest place you’ve worked at?

It would have to be my pride and joy The Cocktail Trading Co. However, Steam and Rye and The London Cocktail Club are very strong contenders.

You must have made drinks for some famous people. Who was your favourite?

Yeah, I’ve been lucky enough to make cocktails for plenty of celebrities but the best for me was Stephen Fry. He’s a real gent.
