ZAPAH_lab LLC is a Atlanta based research and scent label founded in 2015, dedicated to creating unique and not boring scent blends. ZAPAH_lab works side-specific, multidisciplinary and research-based blends. We are inspired by pushing future possibilities of scent in media- and communication design, that open up from a better understand ourselves and the environment. ZAPAH_lab LLC is an anonymous duo of artist and a scientist, kids of the 90’s of the post-Soviet culture. And Zapah (запах - ‘zapakh’) means “smell” in the Slavic languages.
Banks’ booze journey began in 2012 at farm-to-table restaurant Graft in Grayson. He developed a strong, whiskey-focused cocktail program before leaving in 2014 to take up residence as beverage director at The Luminary in Krog Street Market. Banks quickly found his rhythm, winning multiple barcraft competitions around town while gaining a faithful following for creating drinks, such as the wildly popular rosé slushy before moving to Brush Sushi Izakaya in Decatur. Banks focused on the Japanese style of cocktail making, creating simple drinks with a high level technique.
