Apéritif Bar Mixiologist Panji

Head Mixologist, Panji Wisrawan

Crowned the winner of the Campari Bartender Competition 2019 with his signature Campari Cocktail “Jack & Rose”, Panji brings over 10 years experience in delivering creative bar menus to Apéritif. Having graduated from Nipaka L’ ecole Hoteliere in Denpasar, Panji has worked in various locations in Bali including at the fashionable Da Romeo Italian Restaurant in Canggu and was part of the opening team at La Palma Beach Club. Constantly striving to push the boundaries with his cocktail lists, Panji took to the seas in joining Viking Ocean Cruises spending over two years on water where he would host various events including whiskey tastings and mixology classes for guests.

Panji’s favourite cocktail is a Boulevardier because he is a fan of bourbon and negroni. The bold and complex flavour of Boulevardier also represents his personal and career growth in the hospitality industry.

Panji especially enjoys welcoming guests from all corners of the world, sharing travel experiences and sparking memories by creating special cocktails.

What’s So Special About Bali 1930?

What’s so special about Bali in the 1930’s?

Apéritif Bar is a celebration of the rich beverage traditions of the 1930s when the world began to learn about the secret island of Bali and the exotic nature of Ubud and its sublime beauty. Ubud attracted a handful of colourful foreign artists and academics who were drawn to Bali for its ethereal beauty and exotic way of life.  The Cocktail Anthology, a curated collection highlighting key figures in Ubud from the 1930’s, features 10 unique cocktails that tell the story of island life in this bygone era – and the expats that introduced Bali to the world. This immersion in history and culture is designed to transform your knowledge and inspire your palettes.
