If you can recall, Umamimart helped organize a special bartender event back in March, with Suntory and Prizefighter bar. Bay Area bartenders came together with a couple of talented bartenders from Japan, for an afternoon of cultural exchange and cocktail knowledge sharing.
By now, I'm sure you've seen all the photos from the event, and luckily our good friend Joe Stillwater captured a lot of video footage too. Yoko has been busy editing all the videos, which we'll call the Tokyo-SF Bartender Salon Video Series.
Our first presenter was Jon Santer, co-owner of the Prizefighter Bar in Emeryville, who also graciously hosted the event. His drink of choice was the Revolver, and you'll see he spoke eloquently about why he chose this cocktail, and the choices behind the ingredients he used.
Stay tuned for all the videos in this series!
