Whilst at Leeds University, Mike discovered his passion for mixed drinks, and began to build his experience and reputation at two of the city’s most popular venues, Smokestack and Skippy’s.
In 2015, Mike’s expertise in presenting and education led him to Pernod Ricard as Brand Ambassador for Havana Club Rum. Building on his knowledge and connections within the industry, he helped to strengthen and grow the brand, leading to a new challenge to develop the brand strategy and trade education program for the newly acquired Monkey 47 Gin.
