I am a bartender, for almost 30 years. I have studied classic history and archaeology (BA Deree College and MA in Durham UK). I am interested in organic agriculture, beer and wine making , spirits and their production. I have also worked as an arts curator at the Museum of Modern Greek Art and I am an active singer with blues band PAPA LEGBA and rock BLUE ORANGE, where I play guitar and bass. Organising beer and wine tasting events, creating cocktails and exploring the qualities and tastes of Greek herbs. I am also co-organising Rhodes Jazz Festival for the last 5 years! This year I will be exploring my culinary interests, trying to present modern greek tapas in a bar environment!

A unique experience. We learned about local cocktails in a cool way. Thanks for the great time and the amazing tips for Kos 😉 We would definitely recommend the course.

We had a fantastic and really interesting and informative afternoon at café Boheme! Lovely to see the array and breadth of Greek liquors and spirits. Would highly recommend!

Great way to spend an afternoon learning about Greek spirits and history. We had brilliant time throughout the experience, learned lots about the spirits but Zafiris goes way beyond that and you end up having discussions on all kinds of topics. We got to taste way more than we thought we would and throughly enjoyed every drink as well as the pizza. The only shame is that not more bars celebrate the produce they have. Thank you for a fantastic afternoon!

This was an amazing experience. I would 100% recommend booking this. I did this experience as a solo traveller but would thoroughly recommend it to groups too. Zafaris was a welcoming host and very knowledgable. He has great credentials and fascinating stories to tell. The drinks are unique to Greece and he uses local ingredients. He explains the whole process, providing you with a special appreciation for what you are served. The bar is trendy and easy to find. I would gladly come back again when I am in Rhodes and will let all my family and friends know too.

Excellent experience. We enjoyed learning not only about the cocktails, but the specific alcohol used to make the cocktail special. We tasted seven total drinks - far more than expected. While we all had our favorites, each was delicious and unique. Definitely recommend.
