About the festival

This festival will gather bartenders from around the world for a second year in a row. There will be a master class given by the American Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry, author of seven books on the art of cocktails, and considered by the New York Times as the Indiana Jones for Tiki Cocktails. Esquire also recognizes him as a key promoter of the cocktail revolution.

Several bartenders will participate at the Kontiki Lima Challenge Competition, which offers the winner a great prize: a trip to Venezuela to visit the Ron Diplomático Distillery, where they’ll receive training on the spot.

The Mai Tai Grand Prix will also take place during the festival, where bartenders will attempt to emulate the magic recipe of this 1944 classic creation. The Lima Rum Festival is another great part of this cocktail gathering where internationally acclaimed brands such as Ron Havana Club, Ron Zacapa, and Ron Appleton, among many others, will be present. The festival is open to the general public, so do come and enjoy these days with plenty of rum, cocktails, fun people, and sun, inshallah!
