Drinks International Magazine has announced the second year of their Bar World 100 list, and I'm on it for the second year. Last year I was 39, this year I'm 56, but the ranking doesn't matter- I'm just delighted to be included along with tons of friends and other people who inspire me.
The votes were for the "Most influential bar world figures driving positive change in the global bar industry. Those who have innovated and pushed the industry forward, setting the standard globally and inspiring others around them. Those who have addressed injustices in the bar industry, using their influence to effect positive change."
So yeah, that's pretty cool.
