Bar Convent Berlin 2017
Already for the 7th time in a row, we celebrated bar culture with 370 exhibitors from 32 countries at the Bar Convent Berlin on the 10th and 11th of October 2017. During the day, 16 international top barkeepers mixed and served 8 Thomas Henry highlight creations at the Thomas Henry stand. New things were to be discovered at the Thomas Henry Innovation Lab: For the first time, selected guestes were invited to taste our new special edition, the Thomas Henry Coffee Tonic. During our workshop, Phum and Patrick Thiele (formally a cook at Tim Raue and currently Executive Sous-Chef at the Soho House Group) presented what it means to do “contemporary drinking and eating”, how you can reuse your ingredients to be more sustainable and which aroma-combinations can be transformed to contemporary dishes.
