Will Peet

Trade Educator
New York City
Being a native of the New York Metropolitan Area, Will has always been immersed in the restaurant and hospitality world. Coming from a restaurant family, he has always known his path would be to become part of the culture. Working his way through the system, Will found himself managing some fantastic programs in the city, leading up to changing his stance to begin focusing his efforts on a part of the industry he was unfamiliar with: cocktail bartending.
He broke into the scene at the now defunct 'inoteca e liquori bar and would eventually be tapped to be on the opening team for the multi-award winning bar at The Nomad Hotel, where he maintained a leadership role for over 3 years. During that time he also laid the groundwork for and managed a Sherry-focused project called Donostia, in the East Village of Manhattan. A traditional pintxos tavern in the San Sebastian style, Will gained recognition for a cocktail list devoted completely to Sherry, vermouth, and low-proof offerings. He can now be found in and around NYC talking at lengths about (and drinking) northern Scottish whiskeys, and of course, all things Spanish.
