Tobiasz, Bar Manager

Tobiasz Sipowicz
Bar Manager

Back where it all began.. Tobiasz began working in bars from the age of 18 during his studies. He started his career as a bar back, loving the electric atmosphere and chatting to customers Tobiasz decided to embark on a career in the industry. Orginally from Gdansk, North Poland Tobiasz made his way to Scotland due to his love of whisky. Whilst working in Trump Turnberry, he discovered gin! The Hendrick's factory was right on his door step and this is where he delevoped his love for a good G&T. His favourite tipple is a Dirty Martini made with Drumshanbo Irish Gunpowder (shaken not stirred). Tobiasz will continue to revolutionise all things gin at One Square especially when it comes to our Ginnasium experience.
