David Coveney


Breaking into hospitality with the Hotel du Vin and working around some of the best sommeliers and bartenders in the country, David was in good stead for his future. After a brief encounter with an exceptionally well-balanced Tom Collins he fell in love with mixing drinks but was never quite satisfied with the products on offer. He began infusing, macerating and making anything from bitters to liqueurs. Not yet 25, with his own website and running the bar at The Vineyard, Newbury, he is battling with long journeys, expensive train tickets and what he calls the 'Big Boys' of the industry to keep up with all the trends, products and events that are giving him inspiration from every corner of the UK and beyond.
