I am a senior bartender at the American Bar at The Savoy Hotel in London. During my tenure there we have been awarded the title of ‘worlds best bar’ twice and I have had the opportunity to travel the world and do guest appearances and host masterclasses as a result of this success. Through working in one of the most famous bars and hotels in the world I have gained a unique insight into the world of the food and beverage industry at the highest level and have adapted a skill for delivering that experience through masterclasses.

This bartending class was phenomenal! Ferdia is extremely knowledgeable and shares his wealth of knowledge while you are making the drinks. To hear the history behind the drinks you are making adds even more to the experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this class to anyone wanting to get more out of the art of bartending than just mixing drinks. Ferdia is very personable and welcomes any and all questions. I got more out if this class than I ever have reading books, recipes, or watching other videos. Well done Ferdia!

Ferdia was entertaining and a natural teacher. He did a great job of engaging each guest and really made us feel like we were in the same room/ bar together. We learned a lot of new things about making cocktails!
