A Physician for over 40 years and a Psychotherapist for 25, Andrew perfected his first cocktail recipe, the Margarita, when he was importing premium tequilas and mezcals into Ontario in the late 1990’s. Mojitos and Mint Juleps soon followed. A regular at Tales of the Cocktail since 2008, he gave his first seminar in 2016, on a panel which included Nick Kennedy, Adam Rogers and Gary Regan. An enthusiastic supporter of the Toronto bartending community, he was the co-founder, alongside Jonathan Humphrey, of Bartender Appreciation Night and The Bartenders Benevolent Fund. Since March 2017, he has hosted The Toplack Sessions, a semi-weekly series of seminars by, and for, the Toronto bartending and hospitality community. He tends to refer to himself as a “professional customer”.
