Ryan Wainwright, National Brand Ambassador for the House of Bombay Gin, was one of Los Angeles’ most sought-after bartenders. A cocktail purist with a clean, minimalist style, Wainwright strays away from traditional measurements and pours his own bespoke interpretations of classic cocktails that spotlight the spirits themselves with an special affinity towards gin. Born in Southern California, Wainwright attended university in Sacramento to study photography. After stumbling upon an opportunity to bartend at a concert in Big Sur, Wainwright found his calling. In Los Angeles he worked at notable restaurants like Gjelina, The Tasting Kitchen, Terrine, The Ponte and Faith and Flower. His attention to detail and quick-witted personality have garnered him much acclaim in both the Los Angeles and national drink landscapes, including numerous “Best Bartender” and “Best Bar Program” designations from Modern Luxury, Playboy, Eater, and Thrillist, among others; as well as wins for the Southern California region at the United States Bartenders’ Guild “Most Imaginative Bartender” competition presented by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin and GQ magazine alongside national awards at the Bacardi Legacy cocktail competition, The Maestro Lucano Cocktail Competition and The Gra’it Grappa Cocktail Competition.
