Beyond the Drink: Stefano Catino’s Polar Stratospheric Cloud (S9/Ep.16)

Published on: 1st November, 2023

Stefano Catino is considered one of Australia's most influential bar figures. He is behind Australia’s most famous cocktail bar and has racked up a number of awards including being part of The World’s 50 Best Bars in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023- not to mention, named the Best Bar in Australasia at The World's 50 Best Bars in all five years.

In this episode, Stefano walks us through the “Polar Stratospheric Cloud” cocktail (Ford’s Gin, Oscar Bianco, Peach Yoghurt, Cream Soda), which is currently the best-selling cocktail on the menu. 

He shares some of the work he does in the community with The DuGood Foundation, which is dedicated to mobilizing new generations of volunteers across Australia. He also talks about his passion for giving back to kids, something near and dear to him being a father himself. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Drink… with Stefano Catino.

This season is brought to you by Fords Gin, a gin created to cocktail.
