JUDGE PROFILE

Harry has been on the bartending scene since he could legally serve, his first job was actually a glass collector. He worked many bars in his home town Plymouth, and eventually started training bar tenders/managers in the general rules of engagement.

He has worked in famous bars like the Dandelyan Cocktail Bar London and the Mondarin in London. He then owned his own bar for 4 years alongside other businesses and hobbies including flair bartending. With a mobile bar events company, the UKs largest travelling Gin bar, the Great British Gin Festival, all under his belt he then thought it would probably be about time to calm things down. He moved from the centre of Plymouth to the outskirts, close to the beach and country.

He then joined AB-InBev to indulge in the corporate lifestyle, and see how things were on the other side of the bar. He joined ABI in 2016 and is now looking to move further up the ranks within the beer giant. “Always preferring a pint of beer over a cocktail, I thought this was the right move for me!”
