Don't ask him for a free drink or else! JJ, co-founder of The London Cocktail Club, expands on the liquor industry in the UK and the story of his first bar. Originally a prize winning ‘flair’ bartender, this Birmingham lad ended up winning BBC2’s THE RESTAURANT (hosted by Raymond Blanc), as well as winning the London Bartender of the Year award. Now teaming up with the Princes’ Trust (Royal Family Charity), JJ’s goal is to mentor young bartenders and give those in need purpose. He wants to give the cocktail industry the validity he has worked so hard towards.
JJ also let Paris crash on his couch in London when she needed a place to stay. Legend!
