The Spirits BusinessP(our) Symposium explores modern bartending
What makes a modern bartender? Alice Lascelles travelled to Paris for the first ever P(our) Symposium, where the question sparked some lively debate.
The two-day programme of talks, which took place in a space donated by Paris’s annual bar-fest, Cocktails Spirits, was the first for the not-for-profit think-tank P(our). The bartender collective was launched earlier this year by a committee of industry luminaries including Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale, formerly of Artesian, Monica Berg of Himkok, Oslo, Ryan Chetiywardana of Dandelyan, Joerg Meyer of Le Lion, Hamburg, and ECC’s Xavier Padovani.
