About the Author

Andy Ives' drinks-writing career began in the late 1990s, working for The Publican Newspaper and its cocktail magazine spinoff, Flavour. He later joined CLASS, as editor of the magazine's first website, before moving to Australia to become editor of Industry Magazine (cocktail bar design and interiors), and bars editor of Australian Bartender Magazine.

In 2009, Andy partnered with Simon Webster to launch bar industry website BarLifeUK. The site flourished, and BarLifeUK is now the first place bartenders look for cocktail competition news, entries, and results. Andy remains BarLifeUK's editor, and an active competition judge.
