Show Notes

In this episode we spoke with bartender Grant Sceney of Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. Grant’s been one of the few guests we’ve had shortlisted to have on for some time now as we were eager to hear his story, how he came to Canada by way of his native Australia and what it was like winning the Diageo World Class Canadian final in 2014. His win, a crowning achievement for a bartender, helped propel his ascension to being one of the worlds best as he would end up placing 4th at the Diageo Global final a few months later. Achievements such as this one, as well as running bar programs for the award winning Botanist restaurant and the Pac Rim’s Lobby Bar have given Grant a skill set and set of experiences we were excited to hear him discuss. It was a sunny Monday when we met and Grant delighted us with a bottle of batched Don Julio margaritas, which were we more than happy to indulge in. We hope you enjoy this fun and lively conversation.
