Andrey Prutskikh, Russia

Place of work: Insider Bar

Andrey was born in Volgograd, Russia and moved to Moscow with his parents as a teenager. He started in the music industry but after 8 years found himself behind the bar, a new artistic platform that allows him to be closer to his guests. Andrey takes inspiration from all bartenders; Simone Caporale for his charisma, Eric Lorincz for his classic style and Tony Conigliaro for his modernism. Andrey is always looking to improve his techniques and find the next big thing in bartending.
