Ticket to Paradise
Christmas – we are all aware of this fact – wouldn’t be Christmas without some presents. Same applies to BCB which wouldn’t be the iconic trade show without the numerous events around. Especially this year, when many bartenders found themselves trapped without ticket, we try to heal a hurt soul by giving out some great events which definitley won’t be acces-only. Check it out!
Baba au Rum goes My June
What’s it about? – BCB will only last two days, the Greek don’t care. They are in town for seven days to do a take-over at Bryk-bar owner Carsten Schröder’s latest outlet called „My June“. Located within the up-and-coming Skredzki-quarter, Athen’s well renown bar team behind „Baba au Rum“ are going to take you on a week-long rum vacation. What they offer? Yet to be revealed guest-shifts, tasting sessions and how could it be any different: overproof rum. Three times in a row nominated one of the best 50 bars of the world, your surely would not want to miss this high class event supported by the likes of „Barsol Pisco“, „Clementine Rhum“, „Plantation Rum“, „Citadelle Gin“ and our lovely colleague „Alexandra Barstalker“. Cheers!
When? – October 9th to 15th, 2017
Where? – My June Bar, Sredzkistraße 65, Berlin
What’s it about? – Karim Fadl surely is no rookie in the game. Naturally gifted, the former german brand ambassador for Bacardi and Bomby Sapphire, long-time bartender and pretty talented amateur DJ has planned various events of which one stands out the most. Sponsored by Felix Kaltenthaler’s Revolte Rum, Polugar, Avua Cachaca and Macchu Pisco Fadl takes you back to the golden age at „Bar Tausend“ for a super guest-shift take-over. El Copitas meets Untitled meets Pigpie meet Son of a Punch. A european vision of skills included with some great spirits.

Pernod Ricard meets Immertreu and Golvet
What’s it about? – When well-known characters like Dré Masso and Tom Jaschkas meet at Ricardo Albrecht’s „Immertreu“ you instantly know it must be serious business. Serving delicious Altos Tequila drinks you can find them in the awarded bar in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg. And if you are already booked for Sunday, go visit Leo Robitschek, Pietro Collina from „The NoMad NYC“ being supported by Thomas Altenberger and Andreas Andricopoulos at „Golvet“
When? – October 8th, 2017, 8 p.m. (Immertreu); October 10th, 2017, 10 p.m. (Golvet)
Let’s don’t forget about Bacardi’s high-class french brands. Premium vodka Grey Goose will experience a guest shift with Munich Schumann’s based Nouri Elmoussaoui and Constantin Hopper (Bonanza Coffee). Through a fruitful cooperation they have crafted several twists on the Espresso Martini accompanied by Petit-Four pairing. Supported by London’s Swift Bar team on Tuesday (5 p.m.) and by Philip Bischoff on Wednesday (5 p.m.) this event sounds promising to us.
Where – Gipsstraße 11, Berlin
When? – October 10th & 11th, 2017, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Tulips from Amsterdam
„Bébo“ is the name of the newest product by DeKuyper. To be honest, there has not been much information on this launch up to now. It’s all a bit in the dark. Orignally an invitation only event, you have the chance to grab a ticket by visiting the DeKuyper outlet at BCB to attend the „Mysterious&Cuban Party“
When? – October 11th, 2017, 9 p.m.
A German Product
There is no need to introduce Bastian Heuser and Steffen Lohr anymore. Their german rye whiskey became famous here quite a while ago, yet it’s missing the international appreciation so far. So they decided to invite interested folks for a tour around the distillery. Respectively at around 11h,13h and 15:30h a shuttle will transport the attendees to the home of the „Stork Club“. The progamm will consist of a 90 minutes long tour with a tasting and snack thereafter. Sign up at [email protected] and don’t forget to put down your name, mobile and slot. One of the most educative events.
Where? – Schlepzig/Spreewood, Shuttles starting from Berlin
When? – October 9th, 2017, Shuttles starting 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
And of course there will be Guest-Shifts! Many just like always, some more, some less „official“. Whoever is interested in seeing many international bartenders should go visit „Bryk-bar“ with bartenders from Spain and Moscow. Or you hit Friedrichshain’s award-winning Booze Bar to follow Rutte Gin’s invitation for the German All-Star Line-Up of Samuel Bernardo, Yukon Isik, Roman Lewandowski, Boris Gröner and Hendrick Fritsch, starting Sunday, October 8th from 9 p.m.
Have fun everybody! Nobody needs a ticket for the trade show to discover the real pearls!
