ABOUT ME – CHI SONO

Dear Hospitality Professional,
I’ve had the enormous pleasure to work as Bartender, Bar Manager and Supervisor in some of the world’s finest establishments, including the luxurious Claridge’s Hotel and  Harrods’ in London, the Stravinskij Bar at the Hotel De Russie in Rome,  the Relais & Chateaux “Sheen Falls Lodge”  in Ireland, the Mandarin Oriental Luxury Hotel in Barcelona and the Boutique Bar in the exclusive five star Ohla Hotel also in Barcelona.

What also gave me immense privilege, was conducting successful onboard cocktail & bar skills training programs, focusing on bar-set up & cocktail making techniques required to allow crew members, to recognise key qualities in spirits, liquors and fresh ingredients in order to balance flavours and make high end drinks on Cruise Ships and luxury Yachts.

International magazines have very meticulously quoted me as an awarding winning master and an expert mixologist.

I’m currently covering the prestigious role of European Brand Ambassador for 17 Countries in Western Europe for the Diageo World Class Bartending Competition, as Judge, Speaker, Trainer and Consultant.

Having travelled the world, I now speak Italian, English and Spanish

I have also been crowned with the prestigious title of “Ireland’s WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year 2010” advancing to the Global Final in Athens, where I was  placed 3° in the world amongst 9000 Bartenders.

I’m very proud to be part of the esteemed judging panel for both Tales of The Cocktails and 50 Best Bars and have been nominated at Tales amongst the 10 BEST INTERNATIONAL BRAND AMBASSADORS of the Year in 2015 and amongst the 10 BEST INTERNATIONAL BARTENDERS of the Year of the Year in 2012.

Having developed cocktails around the globe, I’m really excited to have my recipes listed in some of the best Bars around the World and on relevant Cocktail Books like:

– Gary Regans’ Best New Cocktails 2012
– Diageo World Class Books
– Gary Regans’ Manual for Bartenders 2012
– Monin Anniversary Cocktail Book
