Rum and whiskey. The double act that no self-respecting bartender would ever want to be without. Don’t miss your chance to nerd up on rare and super-premium labels of rum and whiskey at a weekend festival that spotlights these two top tipples. The event is being co-hosted at the Athens Hilton by Athenian bar star Baba Au Rum (of “World’s 50 Best Bars” fame) and the Greek team of prestigious cocktail bible, Difford’s Guide. During the two-day festival you can sample different brands of rum and whiskey (and discover how to pair them with the ideal chocolate or cigar mate); attend seminars; and learn from the pros how to whip up your own famous classic cocktail at home. Or simply kick back poolside and take advantage of Baba Au Rum’s pop-up bar that will be concocting original rum and whiskey-based cocktails all throughout the event.
