Comment:

Henri Halonen says of his drink, “Herencia is Spanish for ‘tradition’ or ‘legacy’ and this cocktail represents who I am, where I have come from and where I am going.

“My childhood was very rough; I came from a poor family and ended up on the streets with the wrong crowd, going down the path of drugs and crime. After a long road, saying goodbye to the streets and my old lifestyle, I found salvation in bartending and began chasing my dream to become one of the best. Like my drink, life is a mix of bitter, sweet and a solid base that makes you the person you are. You are your legacy, wherever in the future you may stand. Bartending literally saved my life; that is what Herencia is all about.”
