Fifteen top cocktail venues from across Bangkok are teaming up with bar management company Kin+ for a full six days of rum, kicking off  this Monday. 

From Aug 7-13, 18 guest bartenders from around the world host six rum masterclasses from 2-4pm each day in some of Bangkok’s favorite cocktail bars, with all proceeds on the final day going to the Thai Red Cross Society.

In addition to mixology lessons, you can catch guest appearances at up to three venues a day, including Bamboo Bar, Havana Social, Highball, Q&A, Rabbit Hole, Sorrento, Thaipioka, Vesper, Vogue Lounge and Zuma.

Arguably the most accomplished mixologists to make the trip are Kentaro Satoh and Grace Tsai, who placed second and third respectively at the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition 2017 in May. You’ll find Tsai at Sukhumvit’s Highball on Aug 7 and Satoh tearing up Zuma at The St. Regis on Aug 11 (both from 9pm-12am).

Other notables include global Bacardi brand ambassador David Cordoba, one of the world’s most respected rum experts, and Andreas Sanidiotis, the head bartender at Lost + Found Drinkery—No. 48 on the World’s 50 Best Bars.

To mark the inaugural event, Kin+ inked exclusive partnerships with beverage companies Monin and Perrier as well as hospitality brand Novotel.
