Andre is the JBH Global Finals Winner of 2018 in Ireland.
He has been bartending for over 12 years at various levels and now works as a consultant, creating custom events and education programs.
Andre specializes in foraging and the use of local ingredients. He has spent countless hours during the last few years visiting many fields and gardens, walking through forests, meeting farmers, producers, chefs and other specialists to understand the ingredients they use. He is intrigued by where the ingredients come from, what their story is, how they grow-ultimately understanding the journey between the seed and the final product.
So far, he has used his knowledge to build cocktail programs in Canada, Australia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines and Costa Rica.
He is now ready to share his passion by promoting the “Grow your Own Cocktail” movement with bartenders all around the world.
