Sarah Mitchell and The Spirit of Art

Sarah set out “to be a top bartender at a top joint”.

Sarah set out “to be a top bartender at a top joint”.

“It was a gradual realisation that what I really wanted was to be a top bartender, at a top joint”, says Sarah Mitchell, a Sydneysider with all the enthusiasm and energy we have come to expect from Australians abroad. “I’m now a trainer and supervisor at the blues kitchen and I’m just loving it”!

Sarah majored in Combined Sciences and had every intention of returning home for postgraduate studies but she fell in love with London’s hospitality industry. “Meeting new people every day and being surrounded by them having a great time is so seductive”, she says. “I became a flair bartender and then my interest in chemistry took me down a more traditional route. I believe cocktail making is an art. Science is understanding flavour at molecular level. My favourite cocktail is the Perfect Lady”:

Perfect Lady
Giffard Crème de Pêche de Vigne
Lemon juice
Egg white

Sarah’s first tattoo, a doodle, was designed by her sister which the two of them then had done together. The centrepiece of Sarah’s collection today is a peacock perched upon a throne of roses, that stretches from her right shoulder to her right ankle and the impressive work was done in London. Sarah’s left hip features bold frangipanis display, which reminds her of a scent so unique to home in New South Wales.

About Giffard Liqueurs & Syrups

Giffard is a family owned liqueurs and syrups company based in Angers, Val de Loire, France. Our founder, Emile Giffard, was a dispensing pharmacist who combined his professional skills with Gallic gourmet curiosity and in 1885 invented a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur called Menthe Pastille. Four generations later, Giffard remains committed to quality, natural produce in all our liqueurs and syrups because we believe that flavour is always the best ingredient. Please drink responsibly.
