Jamie Walker has stirred and shaken cocktails for the rich and famous, among them Elton and Tom Ford. He also was mixologist at the Beckhams' wedding. And he has worked in many of London's top bars.

These days he's the global ambassador for Bombay Sapphire, and travels the world demonstrating the art of a good cocktail. He's currently in Auckland as a guest judge at the New Zealander Bartender of the Year, and is doing a session for at-home mixologists.

The New Zealand Herald has gotten 10 double places to give away to a training session, valued at $500 per person.
