FOR THE FIRST TIME, DELHI FEATURES ON LIST OF 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN GLOBAL BEVERAGE INDUSTRY
On September 10, Drinks International, the UK-based magazine covering the beverage trade across the world, announced its 2020 Bar World 100 list, a ranking of 100 most influential people in the global industry — mixologists, bartenders, bar owners, journalists, et al. And for the first time an Indian mixologist, Yangdup Lama, made it to this list on the 73rd spot. Monica Berg of London bar Tayer + Elementary has topped the list. The Bar World 100 is a respected guide to the leaders of the bar industry, chosen by a voting panel of more than 100 worldwide commentators.
Forty-eight-year-old Lama has been mixing drinks for the past 25 years and runs two bars in Delhi-NCR, one in south Delhi and the other in Gurgaon. Sidecar, his south Delhi bar, won a spot on this year’s Asia’s 50 Best Bars, the second Indian bar to be on this prestigious list which is an offshoot of the World’s 50 Best Bars, owned and organised by William Reed, a B2C media company in the UK.
