Tyson Buhler

Originally from: Kansas City
Profession: bartender
At: New York City

Tyson Buhler is a bartender at NYC cocktail hot spot, Death & Co. and is the US winner of the 2015 World Class Bartending Competition.

Tyson began his career in the kitchen, from dishwasher, to the line to running a small kitchen. He grew up and went to School in Kansas then attended Le Cordon Bleu in Arizona. After culinary school he began bartending and immediately fell in love with it. Initially the guest interaction is what drew him in. Working in every kind bar imaginable; sports, dive, restaurant, club, he began to learn more and more about to read guest needs. It wasn’t until he began to learn cocktails though that he really fell in love with the industry. Combining the knowledge he learned in kitchens made cocktails a natural fit and he still uses that training to this day.

After gaining recognition while living in Phoenix, Tyson moved to NYC and quickly started at Death & Co, before leaving to run the beverage program at Ristorante Morini. From there Tyson returned to the bar at Death & Co and also was part of the opening team at Leyenda with Ivy Mix and Julie Reiner.
