Artem Fatkullin – Hong Kong and Macau
Art first developed his love for beverages in his hometown of Saint-Petersburg, later becoming a master in mixology working across Russia and Asia. Beginning as a tea-sommelier, he soon discovered his passion for mixing and matching flavours to create brand new and unique concoctions. He further improved his understanding of the history and evolution of cocktails by studying at the international Bartenders Association and working in bars through Saint-Petersburg and Moscow before winning the World Cocktail Championship in 2018. Knowing there is nowhere better to perfect mixology than in a bustling city filled with unique restaurants and lively bars, in 2019 Art jumped head-first into life in Hong Kong. Starting as Senior Bartender in “Dear Lily”, he quickly progressed to Assistant Bar Manager at restaurant Rubia.
