How Not to Take Anything Personally

How Not to Take Anything Personally

20 years ago, a bar was born in New York City that changed the way we drink today.  Two years after that, it arrived in London. Fast forward those 20 years and Milk & Honey in London is still open and just as cutting edge as it was all those moons ago. Our guest today not only manages that legacy but is creating his own.

Pierre-Marie Bisson holds a special place in my heart. Not only is he the General Manager of Milk & Honey, but also a great supporter of Lush Life Cocktail Tours. There is no way I could do the tour without stopping in for a London Calling made by him or his team.

Pick up A Proper Drink by Robert Simonson if you want to read all about Milk & Honey and its influence. We’re here to find out everything we can about Pierre and how he made his way to this iconic bar, then he reveals his favorite spots in London and Paris and give us some top tips for the home bartender.

In this episode, I discovered:

  • How never to take anything personally
  • What he knew he never wanted to do again
  • Why you’ve never done everything
  • How the Brits differ from the French
  • The true meaning of hospitality
  • How to make the London Calling! Click here for the recipe!

Who’s on tap next:

We head back in time to the 1920’s with the Bright Young Things at Claridge’s – one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.
