On Sunday 29 April, with the help of Angostura, Eau de Vie is getting the original bartending band back together for one night only. Three of Eau de Vie’s most famous alumni – former EDV Head Bartender now Vasco Bar owner, Max Greco; the man behind the nautical dream that was Hello Sailor, Luke Redington and the father of the Yuzu Mule, Black Pearl legend and Australian winner of Angostura’s 2017 Cocktail Challenge, Dan Gregory.
In conjunction with The House of Angostura, the yesteryear dream team will be mixing up a selection of Eau de Vie classics from its current menu along with some of its famous drinks from the early years.
Eau de Vie owner, Sven Almenning says, “We were one of the first small bars in Sydney back in 2010 and have built a strong reputation for both high calibre bartenders and exceptional drinks. Max, Luke and Dan were three of the originals; they are very much a part of our success today and they set the bar high for all to follow. It’s great to have them back together for this reunion.”
Dan Gregory, Australian Angostura Brand Ambassador adds, “It was an honour to serve with Max and Luke in the early years. We’ve all gone on our separate ways and so getting the band back together for this special night is just awesome. This will be my first gig as Angostura Brand Ambassador and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick of the year.”
Angostura’s range of award winning rums and of course its iconic aromatic bitters will be on offer, expertly mixed by the trio. The night will mark the beginning of Dan’s year-long appointment as the Australian Angostura Brand Ambassador during which he will be charged with educating fellow bartenders on the brand.
The night is open to everyone; no tickets or reservations are required and entry is free.
