We are pleased to welcome on board Stefano Urso, our offical WA Brand Ambassador! Stefano has a wide range of industry experience and ideas from all over the world and we’re very excited to have him joining us here to drive our brand forward.
Now, in his own words – get to know Stef…
I left Sicily in 2004 and moved to London getting a job as a Glassy / Bar Back in a local cocktail bar.
As a young 18 year old, being exposed to some of the most famous bars and restaurants in London it really gave me an eagerness to learn and grow in the industry.
My passion for the history and culture of alcohol only grew and it was then that I to expanded my experience.
I travelled around Europe, always working in the Bar industry, where I had the opportunity to refine my skills and work alongside some outstanding bartenders and businessmen.
In 2011 I arrived in Perth and fell in love with the place I now call home.
Since arriving here I have had the privilege to work alongside some awesome bartenders and opportunities to manage places like The Green House and Bar Lafayette.
It was when I started working as Brand Ambassador for Bacardi / Brown Forman that I realised that I had the chance to do what I love doing. To be able to share your experience and knowledge on a product your passionate about is something that I am grateful to be able to do for a living.
I have always been drawn to rum because of its versatility and how it influenced our history.
Perfect for all occasions, rum is not bad as a hot beverage, icy cold cocktail or strait from the neck of the bottle. I am looking forward to sharing with you some of the awesome recipes that we have created with Barley Legal 1808 and Spiced.
I am so proud to say I will be representing Illegal Tender Rum Co. New and exciting adventures are about to begin with Illegal Tender Rum Co and I know it’s going to be awesome!!
I will be conducting product taste sessions at various locations around WA and look forward to introducing you to the passion behind our products.
