Don Papa X Funkin Bartender brunch

When Don Papa got in touch asking whether we would like to be involved in a cocktail Brunch, how could we say no? Pitched as 'an immersive experience containing a short masterclass and full range tasting of Don Papa Rum paired with a joint session with Funkin Cocktails'.

Industry professionals from across London were invited and welcomed with an Asian Mary. After a brief introduction into the Don Papa brand, Funkin and Don Papa ran a cocktail masterclass aimed at challenging the perception of how rum can be used in cocktails. The session ended with guests trying 1 bitter, 1 sour and 1 savoury cocktail using Funkin showcasing the versatility of both Don Papa and Funkin's products.

The Bartenders Brunch was a great way to kick off Don Papa's three-week Filipino pop-up 'Casa Sugarlandia' at Shoreditch's 43 Great Eastern Street. Although the pop-up is now entering its last week there are still plenty of reasons to check it out - none more so that Don Papa's 'Dinner of the Dons' event hosted my British-Filipino supper club, The Adobros. Tickets for the event are still available HERE.

Light night menu launches - London

April's Funkin Trade Loyalty Newsletter looked at our Innovation Champion Shaun Hall's bar, Vice & Co's, new Light Night menu launch. This month, we have visited three of London's top bars; Artesian Bar, Callooh Callay, and Cocktail Trading Company.

Artesian Bar

Artesian's new minimalist menu is as fun to play with as it is impressive. Leading from simple to complex cocktails, each serve only involves two ingredients.

From left to right in the below image:

  • Perrier Jouet Champagne & Cream
  • Monkey Shoulder & yuzu
  • Glenfiddich 15 & Pineapple Weiss
  • Star of Bombay & Golden Beetroot
  • Gentiane Grey Goose Vodka & Rhubarb Sparkling Wine
  • Courvoisier VSOP Cognac & mild roast coffee
  • Craigellachie 13 whisky & peach

Calloh Callay

Based in Hackney, East London, Callooh Callay have rolled back the years with their new retro 'Cocktail Bar Manual'. The manual is a showcase of the major learnings at Callooh over the last 10 years of operation.

Cocktail Trading Company

Whilst this may not officially be a new menu, we were so excited by the announcement that CTC will soon be opening a new site in Soho that we thought we would head to the Shoreditch venue for a teaser.
