Mixologist

Young's Market Company

Casey Wallin is the Mixologist for Young’s Market Company in Arizona. After spending 10 years in the fashion industry as a global makeup artist for MAC cosmetics, he was ready for a change. He knew that he needed to be doing something that was highly creative and art driven but wasn’t sure what that was just yet. Casey got a job bartending to pay for and allow the schedule flexibility to support his traveling habit.

Little did he know that he would fall in love with spirits, cocktails and the whole hospitality industry at large. Casey moved to New York City in hopes of expanding his knowledge and to increase the competition level, so he could grow faster. His career and further education in NYC started at Hakkasan where he wrote the spirit bible and helped to create the “classics” section of the menu. In 2012 Casey won GQ and Bombay Sapphire’s most imaginative bartender for New York and took second place in the national competition in Las Vegas. That same year he won the Bacardi Legacy competition for New York and took second runner up in the national finals in Miami. In 2013 he was a top 5 National finalist for Cochon US tour Pig and Punch competition. In 2014 he was a top five finalist for the JP Wiser Rye competition and was back as a top ten finalist for the Bacardi Legacy national finals in New York City. During his time in New York City his cocktails were featured in many publications including Zagat, A.M. New York, Town & Country (top 20 summer cocktails), Thirstynyc.com, Thrillist, Tasting Table NYC, NY Times, Village Voice, and Market Watch magazine.

Since 2015 Casey has been working for Young’s Market Company as resource for the sales team, consulting their accounts on all things cocktail related. This platform has provided the opportunity for Casey to complete over 550 cocktail menus impacting the industry through mentorship, trend setting, and product education.

Founded in 1888, Young’s Market Company is the premier distributor of fine wine and spirits in the Western United States. We are proud to represent industry-leading brands and supplier partners, supported by our Best in Class team of wine and spirits professionals.
