Bartender Max Curzon-Price Of Botanist On Cocktails, Bees, Sustainability And Giving Back To The Community
Dec 15, 2019 Season 1 Episode 37
Jamie Mah / Mickey Mcleod / Max Curzon-Price

In this episode, we brought on our good friend and bartender extraordinaire, Max Curzon-Price of Botanist in the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. We were excited to chat with him about his latest project, Hive of Apiarists, which he’s launched in conjunction with his award-winning cocktail, Plight of the Bumblebee. This project started after Max recently won the Bacardi Legacy Canadian title this past fall and as such he will be competing in the global finals in Puerto Rico in January. 

With an emphasis on sustainability as well as a desire to give back, Hive of Apiarists is an initiative of which we are firmly behind as Max wants to raise awareness for our troubled bee stocks. We let him wax on about this as there was plenty we did not know. From there we chatted plenty about the Vancouver community, a bit of current events, and then we hit Max with a few speed round questions. 

This was a fun one as Max has himself a fantastic sense of humour, something Mickey immediately took to. Some locker room talk definitely took place. We hope you enjoy this one as much as we did. 



Max is also the last of the triumvirate to come on the pod from the award-winning team behind the Bols Around the World Global title, as we’ve already had on Grant Sceney and Jeff Savage. Have a listen to their episodes if you haven't already. 

If you want to find and try his cocktail, Plight of the Bumblebee is now being served at various cocktail bars around Vancouver and around the world. Do check out their website to find out more.

You can find Max most nights behind the bar at Botanist. Go visit him. It's fantastic.
