— DAN CROWTHER —
Bartender of the Month
Dan has been working in and around the city of Leeds for over seven years, gaining experience at some of the most respected and influential bars in the city, such as Jake’s Bar & Still Room and Smokestack on Lower Briggate.
His passion for the industry emerged after he withdrew from an engineering degree at Leeds University to go on the lookout for a more active and fulfilling career. After one year in the leisure sector he was hooked and began studying full time toward a degree in Business Hospitality & Leadership, all whilst honing his knowledge and skills in the industry working full time. After completing his degree in 2013, Dan took over the reins at the award-winning Sandinista in Leeds Northern Quarter, where he currently plies his trade.
His passion for rum and tequila has led him to develop his knowledge, inspiring both those behind and in front bar by setting up various tasting sessions, competitions and industry forums. Over the years Dan has represented the bars that he works in in both regional and national competitions with great success. As a result, Dan has been published on websites such as Bar Life UK which was nominated for Best Cocktail and Spirits Publication Tales of the Cocktail Competition in 2014.
