“My surname is Portugese, I was born in Gothenburg, to Swedish parents and raised in the chilly north of Sweden. I also have a native North American ancestor and I celebrate that with a geometric arrow tattoo”, says Hanna Bixo. “I guess you could say that I’m Native American, Portugese, Swedish – now mixing it in London”.

“My first tattoo was inspired by the Muse hit, ‘Sing for Absolution’. I am constantly reminded of the song and how I feel whenever I hear it. Then came the swallows representing coming of age and leaving the nest but the large snowflake is there to remind me of snow, skiing and home”, she enthuses.

Hanna arrived in London at 18 years old, straight out of school. “I had visited the city many times before then and fell in love with it every time. When I finally got to live here I was enraptured by the cocktail scene and immediately enrolled at Bar School”, said Hanna. Now a top bartender at the very popular Hawksmoor Bar in Knightsbridge, Hanna’s love for the city is stronger than ever but her choice of cocktail gives away the international heritage.

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.
