Introducing – Finbarr Shaw

Finnbarr might have ended up behind a bar but before he turned to the art of drinks mixing he was on track for the a more divine calling. Now with six years of ‘tending under his belt the and currently holding court at The Crimean in Melbourne he could be found tucking into on of his favourite porters or drinking almost unpronounceable eastern European elixirs on his nights away from the bar.

Introducing: Gerald Faundez

In 2010 Gerald Faundez (X&Y Bar, Brisbane) made the Top 10 at the Bartender Magazine Bartender of the Year Competition, dazzling the judges with a charismatic display in the finals. After travelling through South America where he was inspired by the local Pisco and the chilled out drinking culture, we caught up with him for a chat about his career, his hobbies and his love for trashy martial arts movies.
