This is strictly a bartenders appreciation post. Nairobi Cocktail festival was the most fun we have had sampling drinks in 2019. All the bartenders we had a chance to interact with were a joy to watch and talk to as they made cocktai; after cocktail for the crowds.
Event and portrait photographer Wanjohi @wanjoji.ports on IG splendidly captured some of the drinks masters in their element.
The World Class area was a favourite for many and featured several brands under the luxury portfolio. In this year’s edition, Diageo was spearheaded by The Singleton, Tanqueray, Bulleit Bourbon, Don Julio and Ketel One.
