With the art and culture of bartending becoming a greater sight to behold at most events and ceremonies, it is only right that bartenders get the requisite knowledge, skill and tools to enhance their craft.
It is in this light that Trade Director, Culture and Lifestyle, Bacardi USA, Collin Appiah, and wife Louisa Brown together with the entire NYC Bartending Community have gifted House of Mixology Ghana and the bartending community in Ghana four (4) big barrels of tools and equipment to augment the already budding industry.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with BTM Afrika, Ebenezer Tetteh, CEO of House of Mixology Ghana explained the gesture was beyond his wildest thoughts and expressed appreciation to the parties involved in making this possible.
“In a conversation with Collin during the House of Mixology Ghana training session last year, we outlined key things needed to help develop the craft, art, culture and lifestyle in the bartending community in Ghana.
We spoke about acquiring the right tools and equipment for our profession which he willingly offered to purchase for us with the support of his wife and the entire NYC bartending community,” he said.
The tools include cocktail shakers, bar caddies, siphons, mixing glasses, jiggers, cobbler shakers, coasters, Bombay sapphire shooter cups, caps, Baarcadi tropical shirts, hats, bartending books and a whole lot to share.
