Meet your host

Anthony Elskens, as a child he was already fascinated by the intense spices, flavours and aromas that could be found both in his mother’s Antillean dishes and his grandparents’ vegetable and herb garden. The love for cocktails came only when he started working in the Antwerp bar scene in 2014, apprenticed to a number of bartenders who represent the crème de la crème in our gastronomic country.

Since Februari 2022 he works as a brand ambassador for Bacardi Martini. In this role, he guides people through a delicious journey of aromas, cocktail-history and -techniques.

Anthony loves creating cocktails for memorable moments. Are you curious what cocktails can complement your unique moments? Join the masterclass and find out!
