Joe Schofield has bartended and lived in numerous countries across the globe. In July 2018 Joe was awarded one of the most prestigious honours an individual can receive in his industry, International Bartender of The Year in the Tales of The Cocktail Spirited Awards. This was shortly followed by an equally as prestigious title, Bartender's Bartender at The World's 50 Best Bars 2018. He is the only person in history to have won both of the awards.
Joe was a contemporary art student in university when he fell in love with bartending, and quickly decided on a career switch. He established himself as one of London's bartenders to watch, leading to placements at internationally renowned cocktail bars such as The American Bar. He then moved over to Singapore to work with Chef Ryan Clift the owner of the highly acclaimed Tipping Club. It was here the duo created their multi-sensory menu concepts. First, they created the Memory Triggering aroma based menu, followed by what is believed to be the World's First edible menu in the form of Gummy Bears. Both of their menus were recognised by Tales of The Cocktail Spirited Awards Top Ten World's Best Cocktail Menu in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
During his time at Tippling Club Joe established the Tippling Club in the Worlds 50 Best Bars at number 31 and Asia's 50 Best Bars at number 7. Joe continued to lead the charge in racking up an impressive mantel of accolades for the bar in 2017 and 2018. He brought home the title of Best International Restaurant Bar at the Tales of the Cocktail's 2017 Spirited Awards as Singapore's only winning entry, as well as taking Top Ten nominations for International Bartender of The Year 2017 and Top Ten Bar Team of The Year 2018. Joe continues working with Ryan Clift in their consultancy company Sensorium, where they pipeline across the globe. With their own gin brand on the horizon.
