os Angeles native Nicolas O'Connor entered the New York City mixology scene as a brand ambassador for Leblon Cachaca. Exploring the city's vibrant cocktail culture, he fell in love with not only the scene but with the science and art of mixology.
At Leblon, Nicolas had the opportunity to work alongside and learn from some of the industries leading mixologists, including Junior Merino, and Naren Young. This experience provided a basis and an understanding of the possibilities the world of mixology has to offer. Apothéke's past Head Mixologist, Nicolas, remains on as a consulting Mixologist here while he works on projects in Los Angeles. He also runs his self-established catering and consulting company, Green Hour Mixology.
