Mark your calendar as De Kuyper The Works schedule is confirmed for 2019, and you don’t want to miss out. Heading up the program this year is Salvatore Calabrese aka The Maestro whose career spans more than 40 years in the hospitality business. He is the creator of the world-famous Breakfast Martini and the ultimate Dry Martini and has published 13 books.
“I am very excited to be visiting Australia for the first time and look forward to sharing my love and passion for the art of bartending with the local hospitality community,” said Salvatore Calabrese announcing his partnership with De Kuyper The Works.
De Kuyper The Works is a series of workshops designed to upskill Australian bartenders and keep the industry’s leading position globally. The workshops kick off from mid-August in 2019.
“De Kuyper is determined to be the key ingredient partner of great cocktails in bars and homes alike, so we partner with the best the world has to offer to develop creativity and inspiration in cocktail makers. Bringing a living legend such as Salvatore Calabrese to Australia to feature the ‘After Dinner Cocktails’ trend is a dream come true and I’m sure he will add value to all attendees alike” said Pete Hollands, De Kuyper Brand Ambassador for Australia.
This is the fifth edition of De Kuyper The Works Australia and this year for the first time they’ll be heading to Adelaide. As part of the program, bartenders will gain new knowledge across liqueurs’ versatility and creative mixology techniques from Salvatore, while learning about the history and production of De Kuyper, from its origins as a small family-owned distillery in Holland in 1695 to its continued success today as a global brand, rich in family history.
