She travels around the globe and owns two bars in Amsterdam: Flying Dutchmen Cocktails & Dutch Courage, where she and her team mixes the most delicious cocktails, while focussing on building a true cocktail culture in the Netherlands.

Tess Posthumus studied Media & Culture at the University of Amsterdam and completed her Sociology Masters in 2014. During her studies, Tess worked in the hospitality industry where she fell in love with the wonderful world of mixology. For eight years she worked at one of the best bars in the world: Door 74 in Amsterdam. Her talent hasn’t gone unnoticed, as Tess won several national and international competitions. She turned the side job into a professional career and travels around the world as a freelance hospitality professional.

In 2017 Tess opened her own cocktailbar together with Timo Janse, called Flying Dutchmen Cocktails.
