Belgium’s best cocktailbar ‘Jigger’s The Noble Drugstore’ will be invaded by a horde of national and international premium bartenders this January! Be there and surrender to their wonderful libations!
The ladies and gentlemen that will present you their latest creations are all from award winning bars, like for instance Sherry Butt (Paris) and DOOR 74 (Amsterdam), both nominated amongst the 50 best bars of the world. And those of you who still think that bartending is a male dominated job are wrong, JIGGER’S will present you no less than 3 lady startenders: Tess Posthumus ( DOOR 74) has earned a reputation of winning every award she lays her eyes upon and Laura Schacht from Germany – now working in HPS (Amsterdam) – made it 8th place on the Diageo World Class International Cocktail Competition. Last, but not least, we have our own upcoming talent Hannah Van Ongevalle from The Pharmacy (Knokke Belgium).
Our liver cowls in fear when we show you the JIGGER’S guest bartending program for january:
TUESDAY 21st of January: Old fashioned all the way Steve Okhuysen and Tom Neijens (Old Fashioned bar Ghent) These two dapper gents will bring you classics with a twist of their own. They are also known to summon the ‘Green Fairy’ on a regular basis, so we hope you’re a bit absinthe minded.
WEDNESDAY 22nd of January: Antwerp’s finest export products aka Marc Mathieux (Bar Bounce Antwerp) and Dieter Van Roy (Martini Bar Antwerp). Marco and Dieter pour you pure rock ‘n’ roll in a glass. These two masters are high on Tiki influences and will bring you spicy, exotic rum cocktails with a garnish that might bite you!
THURSDAY 23rd of January: Hot & Steamy, french kissing, coming in slippers on their flippers Sullivan Doh (Sherry Butt Paris) & Sichanh Christophe (Calbar Paris). These two Parisian prize bartenders will represent the sheer cocktailrevolution that is happening right now in the city of light. Lots of fun, simplicity and balance are their main ingredients.
TUESDAY 28th of January: Brothers from different mothers Dries Botty (L’Apereau Blankenberge) & Kristof Burm (Josephine’s Antwerp). Dries is a tastebud sorcerer and if he would be a cocktail, it would be named: The Ladykiller. Kristof like none other can turn simple classics into a personal experience with as much magic in looks as in taste.
WEDNESDAY 29th of January: Hiding in plain Sight, shots on the house! Laura Schacht & Simon Martin Alexander (HPS Amsterdam). HPS is a personal favourite of The Cocktail Nation, you have to experience this! Simon the American Scotsman from Amsterdam and Laura Schacht will rock your socks off! Prepare the Picklebacks, Simon!
THURSDAY 30th of January: Hot night with the Nipplepatch sisters Tess Posthumus (DOOR74 Amsterdam) & Hannah TP supported by ‘Daddy the Pimp’ aka Jan van Ongevalle (The Pharmacy Knokke). Hot and crazy, ‘nough said! Award winning drinks and good fun as a garnish, what more do you need!
So get over there and taste it…yes, my liver hates me too.
