Katalin Bene, Switzerland

Place of work: Voodoo Reyes

Originally hailing from Hungary, Katalin grew up in the picturesque mountains of Transylvania, where she could often be found roaming the surrounding countryside for exotic herbs and ingredients. After two years at the Gibson bar in London, Katalin moved to Geneva to manage newly-opened cocktail bar, Voodoo Reyes, which specialises in using local and foraged ingredients to create homemade lotions and potions. She’s happiest when her guests are happy, and her daily aim is to offer a memorable experience to everyone who walks into her bar.
