On Friday, the 16th of October 2020, the students at HTMi Switzerland had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Andy Walch, Diageo WORLD CLASS Brand Ambassador and World Cocktail Champion.

Mr. Walch presented a very insightful seminar about his career progression and about the world of bar, cocktails and top competitions to all the students. But definitely, the highlight of the day has been the World Class Cocktail Workshop. This included a Spirit Tasting Session with some of the most exclusive spirits from Diageo and a Creative Cocktail Making Session where students had the chance to see some of the international winning cocktails from Mr. Walch and they also tried their own luxurious cocktail creations. An amazing World Class experience.

HTMi would like to thank Mr. Andy Walch and Diageo for the visit and supporting this event. Also to Mr. Francois Brauening, Bar Manager at Mariott Zurich Hotel for the insights from the current hotel landscape and to Mr. Benjamin Juhasz, one of our excellent students and a cocktail passionate who initiated and brought this event to life.
