Sullivan Doh has seemingly done it all, and just seems to be garnering more respect from the community each time he shifts his focus. He became enamored with fine dining at quite a young age working at Michelin-starred restaurants in London. It was there that he decided that, if he were going to make a career of hospitality, he needed to get into bartending or cooking. Luckily for us, he chose the former. He soon after opened his first bar in Paris, Le Syndicat. It was there that he really went into the deep end. Concentrating on serving only French-produced spirits, he quickly garnered the attention of the cocktail community and was named one of the 50 best bars in the world. And then he made a seemingly strange turn.
After accomplishing what he set out to do at Le Syndicat (and La Commune), he decided to step down as an owner and go to work for D’USSE Cognac as their Global Brand Ambassador – the position he currently holds. The brand was developed for sale in the US market, but Sullivan is now charged with bringing it global. It was originally… well, let’s hear Sullivan tell it.
