Sailor Jerry East Coast Ambassador
Having worked in the hospitality industry for nearly a decade, Anthony Bohlinger began his career bartending in Hoboken, New Jersey in 2009. Since then he has opened over 30 restaurant/bars, received a James Beard Award for Outstanding Bar Program, and become a national finalist for GQ’s Most Imaginative Bartender competition. Anthony is excited to bring this extensive cocktail experience to Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum as its new ambassador and to share his love for the American-made rum with audiences across the nation.
Anthony graduated from Rutgers-New Brunswick, where he enjoyed playing lacrosse on the varsity team, and whet his hospitality appetite at Chefs Club by Food and Winein both New York City and Aspen, Colorado. Soon after he hit the road to begin speaking engagements and share his passion for all things beverage. Anthony’s travels brought him to Maison Premiere in Brooklyn, New York to work as a bartender at the Top 50s World’s Best Bar. After, he became the Bar Director of The Group NYC, overseeing the operations of 5 top tier New York restaurant bar programs. Here he tested the limits of cocktail creation to find his unique, individual spirit.
Anthony looks to blend his unapologetic spirits history with that of the straight-up, no nonsense rum. Together, Anthony and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum will bring bold and smooth as hell cocktails to the masses – and make a little mischief along the way.
