Story
Introduction

John Gakuru has been at the leading edge of London’s dynamic and fast-changing bar and club scene for over ten years. Following a successful career out of town at venues including Southampton’s Orange Rooms and aboard Princess Cruises, John was appointed General Manager at the renowned London Academy of Bartenders (LAB) in 2001.

 

Whilst securing LAB’s reputation at the forefront of London mixology, John founded event and drinks consultancy Bartotal. Established to offer support in bar design, spirit selection, menu creation and event management, it was through his work in advising brands on best practice that John came to the attention of Sagatiba.

 

After advising Sagatiba on a series of acclaimed launch parties throughout the capital, John was quickly offered the role of Brand Ambassador.  Recognising the unparalleled opportunity and challenge represented by award winning Sagatiba, John accepted the role in 2005.

 

As creator of Wallpaper Magazine’s Cocktail of the Year, John offers a wealth of knowledge on creating, mixing and advising on cocktails, yet John also brings to Sagatiba an international network of bartenders and owners.

 

John’s experience, style, passion for the industry and respect from colleagues makes certain he stands apart from the crowd and continues to set a standard of excellence.
