BAROMETER 2019

BAROMETER 2019

Bar industry like any other market is constantly evolving – culture, technologies, relationships, marketing, role and business models undergo numerous changes. Last year, we studied such important phenomenon as “norms shift”. However, what should remain unchanged is “roots”.
For this reason, in 2019 we look in the opposite direction – the roots, the origins. Roots fuel growth – and we want to explore together with you the origins of creativity, development, industry growth and evolution of an individual inside it.
Roots hold us firmly in the ground of reality, guarantee stability.
If our ground is culture, time and reality, then we should figure out how modern culture and focus on sustainable development influence and nurture the bar world today.
The topic of BAROMETER International Bar Show 2019 is ROOTS.
Barometer ROOTS: let’s drink the history!

Panda&Sons

Edinburgh, Great Britain

Panda & Sons opened in 2013 by acclaimed Scottish bartender Iain “Panda” McPherson. The ethos of the bar was to create a place where everyone would be treated to the best of Scottish hospitality, whilst enjoying incredible cocktails.

Panda & Sons prides itself on using a blend of cutting edge and traditional techniques, to deliver theatrical cocktails in a vibrant table service environment. As well as proving popular with Edinburgh locals and tourists alike, the trade seems to agree, having been nominated numerous times for the Spirited Awards at Tales of The Cocktail and is currently ranked No.61 in the World 50 Best bars (51-100 edition 2018).

Panda & Sons, as you may gather from the name, has a working culture of ‘family’, the bar has always offered a great working environment; it is an accredited living wage employer and offers a profit share for all staff.

If you’re wandering the streets of Edinburgh looking for a bar, you won’t find Panda & Sons. However, if you come across a barbershop offering 25¢ haircuts and shaves you’re in for a treat!”

Theses

 “Roots” for vermouth means to go back to the origins and discover why the modern vermouth, as we know today, was born in Torino and to look at the important dates, historical events and situations that made vermouth origin there. My book describes the Vermouth of Turin, it is a chronicle of the roots of vermouth from the ancient Rome, passing trough the first text of 1570, the Savoy Reign, the cook at royal court, to Carpano and the success of vermouth looking at the recent history.

This seminar is the union of a deep analysis of the bibliography of the alchemists and oenologists of Middle Age up to the manuals of the liquorists of nineteenth century and a detailed reconstruction of dates, historical events, episodes, and curious things helping to understand why the most famous aromatized wine in the world was born in Turin.

I will also mention an important topic: the birth of the Consortium of Vermouth of Turin.
And why i believe that 2019 will be the year of vermouth.
I will talk about the path that brings to this result: the quality and organoleptive characteristcs of the modern vermouth and the reason why it returned on the bar shelves, and of course about the future.

Biography

Fulvio Piccinino was born in Turin in 1967. After working for a multinational brewery for many years, he moved behind the bar where his fascination with studying the products and mixed drinks began. In this context he has carried out in-depth studies on the Futurist polibibite, making him one of the leading experts on these.

In the development of his professional career he devoted himself to teaching in hotellerie schools, Salesian professional schools and holds thematic seminars at the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo on the process of distilling and manufacturing liqueurs and vermouth. He is the administrator and editor of the drinking culture website www.saperebere.com, and has published five books, saperebere, la cultura del bere responsabile (2010) , The Futurist Mixology (2014) e Il Vermouth di Torino (2015), translated in 2018 as The Vermouth of Turin, Il Gin Italiano (2017) and Amari & Bitter (2019).

Philip Duff

Theses – “2019 Industry Trends & Their Roots”

First I will speak about a few select 2019 trends we are seeing in bars, cocktails, spirits and bartending.

Next we will look for the origins of those trends in the past; for example, the rise of international celebrity bartenders in 1869 versus the same in 2019, or the effects of word-of-mouth promotion in 1919 versus social media “word of mouth” promotion in 2019.

Then we will try to determine if a trend is repeating itself, extending itself, or simply re-occurring without any reference to the past. For example, many of the people making and selling canned or bottled premixed cocktails have no idea that bottled premixed cocktails existed already in the 1860s – or why.
In conclusion, we will sum up the roots – or not – of some current trends in our industry, and provide a template to decide if a trend is simply re-emerging, is a homage to the past, or if it is genuinely a new trend.

Theses – “750 Years: The Roots Of The Modern Juniper Spirits Boom”

From medicine to whiskey to neutral alcohol to million-case brands; join juniper aficionado, genever brand-owner, marketing graduate and Gin Guild Rectifier Philip Duff at Barometer to trace the social, technical and commercial evolution of juniper spirits, from 1269 to 2019.

This brand-new seminar, never before presented, unifies research from the dawn of time and across the globe, revealing the shifts in preference, technology and marketing that brought spirits from the medicine cabinet to the drinks trolley — and juniper from Europe to the world.

Learn why genever is whisky’s grandparent as well as gin’s, how one million-case gin brand only got greenlighted because a CEO was retiring, how one of the world’s best-selling gins is barrel-aged (but they’re not allowed to say that), and how (and where) one gin brand outsells the rest of the entire global gin category“.

During the 90’s a small band of creative minds set about changing the way we were drinking by looking back at the roots of cocktail culture. Through their hard work, discovery, creativity and most importantly their mentorship, a cocktail culture blossomed around the globe creating a whole new world of opportunities. This movement in turn also changed the face of drinks marketing. Bar concepts have pushed boundaries and there have never been more product choices for the creative bartender – The world has never been a better place to get a good drink than it is today. Exploring the roots of our industry and how bartenders before us inspired this new world of drinking we look at the importance of the global cocktail community on shaping the way everyone drinks and its impact on marketing. The demands for transparency, brands with true provenance and the need for social responsibility are simply asks that we make to companies supplying us and this is good for everyone.

There is no face control since we believe that a bar is a place where anyone can come. There are almost no random people — the atmosphere itself “pushes” them out into the street.

Usually it’s jazz or funk playing in the bar. The interior includes several art objects dedicated to the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. The menu also corresponds to the name of the institution: drinks are divided into “chapters” reflecting Freud’s ideas.

Le Syndicat

Paris, France

Few years ago the new era of bartending went to the chase of niche particular foreign spirits from everywhere. Witnessing this Romain Le Mouellic and Sullivan Doh came, 4 years ago, with an obvservation: France is worldwide known for making great spirits but those are either exported or drunk locally. Why not trying to undust those bottles and give them bright and shine?

Le Syndicat was born.

The first cocktail bar using only French alcohol in order to showcase the diversity our land is offering and bring those forgotten liquors back on the front stage. As we noticed Cognac was famous in the hip-hop scene in America, the idea was to get our Cognac back to the menu and take their music to instore a balance.

Pouring French spirits while listening hip hop, that’s what we do. With a bar program dedicated to share our patrimony, we take inspiration from a bottomless pit and keep on challenging ourselves to make sure the customer experience is the best we can do.

Le Syndicat Cocktail Club – when GrandPa’s spirits go Gangsta!

Persons in charge:

Juliette Larrouy, one of the new Head Bartenders at Le Syndicat Cocktail Club started in the kitchen. After growing up in the south of the France, she came to Paris to start the famous culinary school, Ferrandi. She worked for Michellin-starred Chiberta, Briketenia and then one year at Claude Colliot where she became a sous-chef. In search for a fresh start and new challenge she started at Le Syndicat three years ago as a waitress, gradually bringing in her knowledges concerning food in the syrup preparation and “mise en place” cooking technique. Then she started learning about the bar and spirits, and after three solid years she is today co-managing Le Syndicat Cocktail Club with Giovanni Allario.

Giovanni Allario is one of the new Head Bartenders at Le Syndicat Cocktail Club. He was born in Caracas, Venezuela and grew up in Genova, Italy. His international background pushes him to travel and, after graduating in Industrial and Graphic Design in his hometown, he moves to Spain to learn about cocktails and hospitality. Couple of years later we find him in Paris working at Danico, discovering new techniques and flavors, and finally he landed at Le Syndicat, where after two years of learning french spirits and improving his skills he today is co-managing Le Syndicat Cocktail Club with Juliette Larrouy.

Spicy No Spicy

Kyiv, Ukraine

The main features of our bar are unsweetened accents, unusual tastes and combinations as well as the Japanese tradition of MizuWari (a combination of strong alcohol and tea cordials). When designing and developing the cocktail card, we paid much attention to oriental botanicals that allows us to complement and emphasize the taste of Asian dishes. Most of the drinks we prepare in the bar are light, with more delicate and elegant taste.

We have a habit of introducing something new and unusual in new editions of the menu. In the spring-summer menu there will be a serving in the conception of food-pairing! The idea is the following: oysters, gin and dry vermouth. At first glance there is nothing unusual but we came up with a kind of a ceremony for our guest. We serve an oyster sprinkled with gin and with lemon peel with a glass of chilled dry vermouth. It’s a kind of “Dry Martini” with oysters — aesthetics and taste are guaranteed!

In the bar there are trend directions such as eco, recycling, sous kind and so on …

SpicyNoSpicy is a quite young institution (opened last September), there are no team rewards yet, but we are on the way and we do our best to do it every day! But on the whole institution is among the 12 finalists of the Restaurant Business Palm Tree 2019.

Red Frog

Lisbon, Portugal

Located on the most luxurious avenue of Lisbon, “Avenida da Liberdade”, there is a concept that aim to serve and show what is best made in the art of bar and cocktails, with great inspiration in Speakeasy concept that arises from cities like London and New York, especially during the period of the “dry law” or “Prohibition” in the United States, but with the identity of our city, country and culture, making this our difference.

The structure of our vision is to demonstrate the various periods where the culture and consumption of cocktails were more visible and creative, the golden age of cocktails, early 19th century, through the “Prohibition” in the 20s and early 30s, or revolutionary periods like the 50-s and 70-s, culminating in the modernity of the 90 years of the cocktails to the present, adding to it the way you operate the camera when it is asked to “press for cocktail” to get in the space.

We function only with places sitting, swing music, jazz, funk or rock that help create the desired atmosphere, the decor inspired by 20´s and 30´s, complete isolation from the outside world from entering the bar, and the intention of being a social bar regaining the bohemian spirit, festive and point against all lovers of the world of bar and social fellowship.

Adler’s Passage 13

Ternopil, Ukraine

Adler’s Passage is a secret of Ternopil because it’s situated on the street that doesn’t exist anymore. The additional mystification is linked to the number “13” which has always been associated with something mysterious by people from all around the world. And the true spirit of witchcraft and pharmacy is passed to us by Ignatius Adler, a former dweller of the house where our bar is located.

Mixing cocktails as well as preparing chemist’s potions requires experience, knowledge and certain skills that our bartenders have and can surprise every our guest. How? Then can do it beginning with classic cocktails, ending with their own author’s recipes and chef bartender’s recipes. Our cocktail card and assortment of alcohol are harmoniously matched with dishes in the style of “casual food”.

We are the very institution that keeps the style, follows trends (that is proved by our INSTAmenu) without losing historical spirit or changing traditions.

Ted Haigh

Biography

Ted Haigh has had a fascination with cocktails ever since, as a kid, he used to watch 1930s society movies with their glamorous cocktail scenes. One fateful day, he stumbled on an old 1934 bar guide. Noting the strange drinks, the Corpse Reviver, the Monkey Gland, and the Bosom Caresser, he thought about those old films and resolved, someday, to sample the drinks of that era.

Beginning in the early 1980s, as an adult tenacious in his every interest, Haigh began to collect more and more old books on the subject. He also started acquiring the obscure booze to reproduce those strange old potions. By the late 1980s he was finally able to sample the object of his initial ardor: The Corpse Reviver #2. To his amazement, it was wonderfully balanced, fresh tasting, and utterly delicious. In-depth collecting and renewed research followed.

By the mid 1990s, assuming himself to be alone in his interests, he discovered the fledgling World Wide Web. He found kindred souls on the AOL Drinks bulletin boards and began humbly answering questions based on his years of research. When, at the advice of cohorts, he became Dr. Cocktail he was immediately asked to become the maven of the spirits & cocktail forums where he gained a loyal following. In the intervening years, he co-founded the Internet Cocktail Database, and The Museum of the American Cocktail.

Doc is the author of the award-winning book “Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails” of which William Grimes said, “The cocktails are great and the photos are stunning. You have your hands on stuff that no one else does.” His premises and theories of the cocktail and its constituent components have been widely quoted and referenced in the New York Times, Esquire, The Malt Advocate, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, Imbibe Magazine, the Associated Press, in at least 14 books, various radio interviews, and widely on the Internet. He has written for national magazines, provided introductions and prefaces for a number of books by others, and given advice to Spirits makers, bartenders, and other writers, He has two of the larger collections of vintage cocktail books and spirits in the world.

He lives in Burbank, California with his wife, Nurse Cocktail, five cats, a mule, and a donkey.

Apoteka Bar

Vilnius, Lithuania

Apoteka opened its doors in November 2015. It’s located in a little bit quieter spot of Vilnius old town, at the time there was not a lot going on around here, but that changed since we opened. It’s a bar with 27 seats and we have a chairs policy, it means we can accept a maximum of 27 guests at one time. It was risky because we were pioneers with this policy in Lithuania, but time flies and now we see that our risk paid off. The good thing about it is that people appreciate hospitality and details, they come specially to us, not just randomly passing by (of course sometimes that happens too).

At the moment our bar team consists of 5 bartenders and we all work changing positions, one day you are behind the bar, another at the door and the next one serving the tables. The main idea of this bar is to make modern creative cocktails and to offer our guest something new and special each time they step in. We put a lot of work and attention to details in our menu and cocktails. Jazz music, dim light, new flavours and interesting experience from the first step is what you can expect when you enter Apoteka.

Gimlet

Kyiv, Ukraine

Gimlet is a bar where the 400-year history of gin hit its modern note uniting those who have something to tell and to appreciate.

For example, 40 kinds of gin from all over the world. Or classic cocktails, which shaped the culture so dear to you. In the bar, you will see a book of recipes that includes 54 of them. As you may see the Gimlet was the inspiration for the name. It came from the 19th century and of course, it is based on gin.

Same as literary cocktails.

Yet it can’t go without good old tequila, mescal, bourbon, and others. In order to obtain original tastes, all syrups and cordials are prepared in the private laboratory. Ginger beer, ale and 3 kinds of kombucha are produced there as well.

Guests of Gimlet know that the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow. They feel the bar romance. Whether it’s a loud company or a loner debating the bartender regarding a spontaneous gin-tasting. At the end of the week, the atmosphere is filled with music from funk to jazz. Live.

In the daytime, the bar opens at 11 am. After whirlwind nights on Friday and Saturday lunch is served from 12 pm.

Right, about the kitchen. The menu is based on classic European and Asian recipes, which the head chef had his own view on. By the way, he came up with gin sauce. Yes, this bar is all about gin.

Bar Americano

Almaty, Kazakhstan

Bar Americano is the first bar in Almaty created in the style of America in 1920-1930. Only natural materials were used – stone, wood, and metal.

This is a two-room basement bar. The first one has a bar counter, while the second one is a place of comfortable seats and a vintage piano used by artists for live performances.

The entrance is not disguised (there is no full conspiracy seen in the concept of original Speakeasy-bars), yet it is ‘hidden’ inside the building. You can get inside the bar through the door phone.

The place is convenient for both chatting with cold champagne or cocktails, and for louder evenings on weekends. It works until the last guest and never closes by the hour.

It’s a place with a unique atmosphere, which brings you from the cultural center of Kazakhstan to a cozy home-like environment.

The bar menu consists of 10-12 cocktails and is updated every 1-2 months in accordance with the season.

The concept of the bar menu was established on a couple of ideas: local ingredients and having a connection with the taste preferences of the locals. The city’s name Almaty is translated as ‘apple-like’. Thus, the most popular cocktail Almatini is based on this ingredient. It consists of home apple liquor and other ingredients based on local cultivars of apples.

The bar team are the best bartenders of Kazakhstan and Central Asia according to Diageo. They are also winners of national and regional contents and simply active and fun professionals with a smile on their faces and the only goal – to make you feel at home.

Being quite new, the bar opened at the beginning of 2019 and has drawn the attention of the main restaurant and bar critics and different media, has been nominated and won ‘Discovery of the Year’ award according to the annual Almaty restaurant contest.

Peter Dorelli

Theses

My presentation would aim to show we have completed the circle back to the roots again, which is all about giving importance to the customer and hospitality. In the past cocktails were a means to enhance the customer’s experience and enjoyment with the bartender helping to enrich the memories they took away. We are moving back to more focus on the whole experience which includes the cocktail and the ability of the bartender to understand the relationship between himself and the customer. This includes mindfulness and a more altruistic approach to the wellbeing of the customer. I will use my fifty five years of experience, most of which was at the American bar of the Savoy Hotel in London to talk about customer expectations and being a good host as well as what is needed to be a good professional bartender today. Our motto at the Savoy was “in excellence we strive” which still applies to our profession.

Pavol Kazimir

Biography

Pavol Kazimir has been part of Brugal for five years and currently holds the position of 1888 Rum Global Ambassador where he is responsible for 1888 rum education internationally.

Born in Kosice, Slovakia, Pavol didn’t intend to pursue a career in the spirits industry – studying economics in college – and happened upon what inevitably became his passion, incidentally, after taking a job bartending while he was a student in Germany.

Through bartending, he began to understand the art of mixology and learn the complexities of spirits, which he found had many similarities to cooking and was just as fascinating. Additionally, bartending opened the door to meeting some of the top bartenders and mixologists in Europe and the United States, who helped him hone his craft and acquire the skills needed to be a professional spirit taster.

While Pavol’s passion for spirits in general remained strong, the focal point quickly turned to rum, after he spent years traveling the world attending various Rum Fairs. During this time that he was introduced to Brugal and it was his instant connection to the brand, the legacy, and the level of commitment to creating a superior product that took him to the birthplace of Brugal, the Dominican Republic, to learn more about their unique and intricate blending process and master his skill in rum tasting.

Bob Nolet

Biography

Bob Nolet runs the Nolet Distillery in Schiedam, Holland alongside his father Carolus Senior and brother Carl Junior. They continue sharing the story of Ketel One Vodka that started back in 1691 – ten generations away. 

Some of Bob’s earliest memories are of the Nolet Distillery. Later on, having learned about sales and manufacturing, having studied in California, he goes back to the distillery to fulfill his family business destiny and work with a distributor of Ketel One Vodka in the USA. 

America in the era of cocktail-mania inspired his father to create new premium vodka – the best one, softer and richer than ever before, giving birth to the Ketel One.

Having inherited the recipe with its crafting challenges, Bob set yet another goal – to arm bartenders with Ketel One Vodka. As there were no gadgets back then, he traveled from bar to bar carrying a TV and video recorder to spread the word. 

With much water under the bridge, with tremendous efforts put, now Bob travels the world trying Ketel One Vodka cocktails in bars around the globe discovering new, exciting flavours and ideas.
