Salvatore Calabrese is hailed as one of the most renowned bartenders in the world. He developed his talent working in the small village of Maiori off the Amalfi coast where his intrigue in mixing different flavors began at an early age. He can now be found at his own “Salvatore’s” in London’s Mayfair.
Now as a London native, Salvatore has broken the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the most expensive (and oldest) cocktail in history.At 730 years old, the combination of a 1778 Clos de Griffier vieux cognac, a 1770 Kummel liqueur, a circa 1860 Dubb orange Curacao and two dashes of Angostura bitters dating from around 1900 leave a price tag of £5,500 (approximately $8,869). So, the question is… how much do you tip the bartender?
