What many bartenders aim for is that wow moment with a customer. A drink that is so good it sticks in the guest’s memory and makes them feel special. That’s hard when your guests are the worlds best bartenders, so you have to up your game.
“My first time with the Flavour Blaster was one year ago when Simone and I were trying to create the best vibes ever during the WorldClass 2019 where I was leading the amazing Zacapa Bar surrounded by the best bartenders in the world.”
His team needed to push the envelope and serve something unique to people who spent their days making up drinks, so they introduced a ‘surprise element’ using the Flavour Blaster gun, and the guests went crazy!
“I’ve come back to Italy this January and I’ve already shown the business’ around my city - Verona - what you can do with this fabulous Flavour Baster gun.”
