John Collingwood

I am writer, mixologist and all round cocktail / spirit lover. I have been in the drinks industry for over 13 years now, starting my career at the Living Room in Manchester in 1999 for a couple of years whilst at uni. Then I spent 6 years at Bacardi Brown Forman, working in the Brand Development & Training Team...then I decided to go alone and set my own company up www.wanttoimpress.com, 3 years on it is going from strength to strength; but I still find the time to be the Bar Manager at No28 in Newcastle and write for numerous publications.
