Joe Prout

Life aye, everyone has their get up, and this is my calling in a nutshell. Bartending and liquor is my so called 'thing' in life, and this developed from a basic upbringing in the field, the best place to start. And although these blogs are for your amusement, education and relaxation, for me they provide a platform for my peak in my ongoing discovery of weird and wonderful drinks. Because life is like a box of should always be indulged with rum. Come visit me at the Captains Club hotel; home to my business placement, great drinks and a symphony of funloving bartenders.
