Toby Efteland - 2018 Finalist - Denmark
Only 2 weeks left before the final of Linie The Journey in Oslo. This year we will have 13 candidates from 7 countries competing. Here is a small presentation of Toby, candidate from Denmark:
Tell us about yourselves and where you work:
My name is Torbjørn (Toby) Efteland. I have been working as a bartender for around 6 years, most of it was in Bergen, Norway.
I now work in an aquavit bar in Copenhagen called Rastløs (meaning restless). It is a bar with a consistently changing cocktail Menu that incorporates aquavit in everything, as to show the diversity of this Genre of spirits.
Tell us briefly about the idea behind your Linie cocktail:
I am half Singaporean - half Norwegian. So my drink is about portraying how Singapore is always moving forward while including the world in its culture.
I am using classic Singaporean/South Asian beverage(Teh taric) and add on my experience and heritage in a way that Singaporeans do with everything around them.
Thank you for answering our questions Toby.
Good luck with the final!
