Andy Ferreira, Ireland

Place of work: Cask and Raise the Bar

Hospitality is in Andy’s blood. His parents owned a successful restaurant which gave him exposure to the fast-paced industry from a young age. After furthering his trade in Dublin, he’s spent time in the USA, Australia, Africa and Asia. He’s managed venues in the Thai mountains and rural Ireland, has won several awards and even set up a consultancy! His drinks programs have introduced nature to his customers, using local produce. Cask is the bar he manages in Cork and hopes to make it the best cocktail bar in Ireland!
