The British-born mixologist has concocted drinks and run bars in the metropolitan likes of London, Barcelona, Buenos Aires and New York City.

In 2006, Voisey won the silver medal at the World Female Bartending Championships in Italy, and was previously named United Kingdom's Bartender of the Year in 2004.
