Heleri Rande of Think Hospitality interviews cocktail bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan) He opened his first bar, White Lyan, in London in 2013 as the first cocktail bar in the world to use no perishables; no fruit and even no ice. It was an exploration in sustainability, with much lower waste and a use of pre-made cocktails and innovative ingredients. This focus on a ground-breaking approach remains in the evolution of White Lyan in Super Lyan, Dandelyan and now the cocktail restaurant, Cub.
