Despite a jet-set lifestyle that can have her styling cocktails in Hawaii one day, and filming for national TV the next, Elayne Duff's first love is talking craft cocktails with bartenders, bar managers and owners.
As Diageo's first-ever luxury mixologist, Elayne has worked with celebrities such as P. Diddy, worked as an expert mixologist on the global famed show "Bar Rescue", created and executed the wildly successful Delta Airlines Elite programs for onboard and in-lounge mixology, which reflected Elayne's passion for classic recipes, fresh ingredients and luxury brands. During her career at Diageo Elayne designed seasonal cocktails for top Manhattan bars, consulted on new projects such as Pottery Barn's new mixology section, evaluated liquid samples for new brands & line extensions, trained bartenders and distributors in Diageo's Fifth Avenue training bar, researching seminar topics and keeping up to date on mixology trends all around the world.
