2014 marks a decade of relentless training, learning and studying for our lead cocktail trainer, Ben Blair. He has a strong and varied history in bars around the world, working his way up from fast paced clubs through backstreet cocktail bars up to some of the finest establishments in the world. 6 years of management experience between London and Sydney, backed by a constant desire to learn has brought him a solid and invaluable foundation of knowledge.

Having experience in the many facets of the bar world gives Ben the solid understanding necessary to be at the top of his game. He is currently one of the top bartenders in Australia and this is exemplified by his attention to detail. Whether it be a national cocktail competition or a quiet weeknight in the bar he works at, you can be assured that his experience will make you feel right at home.

With his varied knowledge of the bar scene, he understands what is necessary to make a good bar great, a novice bartender impress and even a bar more profitable. From ergonomics to cocktail histories, ingredient and methodology trends through to knowing the numbers necessary to maintain profits, Ben is a leader in his field and a great resource to have working with us here at BarMax.
