The pirate of the group. It’s impossible to remain calm when Karl is about. Whether this comes from his pirate blood or some other-worldly power we do not know. Some things we do know are: Karl was born in Wisconsin, USA to Swedish parents, but settled in Umeå in the north of the Sweden (it’s colder than Glasgow apparently).

He is a bartender at Open/Closed, a high end delicatessen during the week, and an experimental cocktail bar at the weekends. Karl has worked in the service industry on and off since he was 15, working in coffee shops, pubs, brasseries and cocktail bars. He made his first cocktail when he was 23 and has been hooked ever since.
