Service and quality are bartender’s essentials according to Ben Belmans. “As a bartender you can combine the creativity of a chef with the sense of service of a maître d’hôtel” he says.
Elegance shall not be neglected, “There is no use giving great cocktails if you serve them without a smile.”
Working as a bartender and consultant for 10 years, Ben is witnessing a great change in the Belgian cocktail scene. "We now have a growing community of bartenders."
We are at the beginning of a new era and this could definitely be the one of cognac."
