Jack McGarry

In this episode, we have Jack McGarry from the Dead Rabbit in NYC joining us. As far as bartending royalty goes, few are as famous or as accomplished as Jack. The winner of the 2013 International Bartender of the Year award, and the co-owner of the Dead Rabbit with Sean Muldoon; a venue that has won numerous international awards including the prestigious gongs for World’s Best Bar, World’s best Cocktail Bar, World’s Best Drinks Menu and many many more. But there’s more to Jack than being a great bartender. In addition to opening Dead Rabbit, and then Black Tail, Jack and Sean have also co-authored three books, and are currently planning both national and international expansion of their Dead Rabbit Brand, something we’ll be touching on in our conversation.

Beyond the bar, Jack has also been very open about his past battles with alcohol and is today a champion for mental health. He’s also an avid marathon runner, and - I found out during our chat - an avid list keeper and a super organised and ambitious entrepreneur.

Jack is constantly striving to be the very best at everything he does, so if you are aiming for excellence in life and at work, this is the podcast for you
