Dion started his career in the craft cocktail world at The Kitchen Denver, then went on to open a cocktail lounge and pool hall called Gerard's Pool Hall.

Dion loves talking spirits and their history and his favorite cocktail is a classic daiquiri. If you haven't had a classic daiquiri, we should talk.
