How A One Way Ticket Can Change Your Life

Whether someone gives it to you or you buy it for yourself, a one-way ticket out of town can, in some cases, mean the end of one life and the beginning of a new one. In our guest’s case, this was the start of something great. Landing in London, the light turned green and he was off.

I met Tomáš Čistý when I was invited to interview the participants of a cocktail competition last year. The cocktail he created blew the judges away. After the rollercoaster of his life, as he calls it, he is now on the brake run, slowing down before another double dip might appear ahead. He’s now settled as Bar Manager of the private club 12 Hay Hill in London and Brand Ambassador of Wrecking Coast Distillery in Cornwall, and loving it.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How swimming changed Tomáš’s life
  • What the bar scene was like in Prague
  • How Wrecking Coast Distillery came calling
  • What is Tomáš’s favorite spirit
  • How to make the Cornish Highball, a cocktail Tomáš created for 12 Hay Hill using Wrecking Coast Scurvy Gin
