The Brains Behind It

Bringing it Back

Lars Erik Lyndgaard Schmidt is a Danish mixologist, who decided to recreate Caperitif after finding it strongly featured The Savoy Cocktail Book - a popular reference for bartenders. Excited about this project, he contacted Adi Badenhorst, a South African winemaker, whom he quickly formed a friendship and partnership with. The result of their combined expertise is a modern version of this classic cocktail ingredient.
