The Village Drunk

Lou Bustamante is a spirits professional who has filled a considerable number of roles within the industry: working at a distillery, recipe & product development, bartending, teaching cocktail classes, whiskey label design, and importing 20 tons of whole cooked agave piñas from Tequila, Mexico.


It may sound like a heartwarming tale of a boy and a bar, but Lou actually spends significantly more time hitting the books than the bottle.


He’s currently writing about spirits and cocktails, while expanding his knowledge of fine food and drink in the San Francisco Bay Area.
