Russell Davis continues to seize international attention for his work as a bar/mixology/spirits consultant, television personality, and bar industry entrepreneur. As one of the most well-known and influential nightlife professionals, Russell is paving the way for the new era of the "celebrity bartender & mixologist." As the 2012 Bartender of the Year, former President of the Texas Chapter of the United States Bartender's Guild, co-star & expert of Spike TV's "Bar Rescue," and founder of such projects such as the Zero Gravity Cocktail Glass and the world's first soda jerk competition, the San Francisco Jerk Off, Russell has been hailed as "The People's Champion of Bartending" (Mutineer Magazine) and "The Aristocrat of the Working Class" (Nightclub.com).
Russell is known for his rebelliousness, southern charm, renegade business sense, and his signature bartending style, which combined proper mixology & craft bartending technique with speed, knowledge, and showmanship, which helped him become the first social media verified bartender & mixologist to be recognized as a public figure. Currently, Russell is the President of Unlimited Liabilities, an elite bar & beverage industry consulting company consisting of some of the best bar talent in the world; he is also the CEO of Cocktails & Dreams Inc., and acts as the Chief Cocktail Officer for Shaker & Spoon, the premier cocktail subscription trunk club on the market, which Unlimited Liabilities proudly curates. In between projects, Russell travels the world, living off the grid, researching obscure drinking culture, techniques, ingredients, and recipes in order to catalog them before they are lost to modernity.
In 2017, Russell will be releasing the #BarIsAStage, an online application & social media platform to spotlight days in the lives of bartenders & mixologists from around the world. He will be launching numerous programs internationally as his passion lies in the evolution of drinking culture worldwide. With several projects on the horizon, multiple television programs in development, and Unlimited Liabilities increasingly expanding capabilities, Russell will not be slowing down anytime soon.
