Swedish beverage start-up Caliente have been invited to serve their chili-infused drinks at several of the bars at the inofficial Nobel Afterparty “Nobel Nightcap” in Stockholm on 10 Dec 2016. Nobel Nightcap, known for not accepting any journalists or cameras, attracts more than half of the Nobel banquet guests every year.
Rising to the occasion, Caliente have invited bartender champions Dosa Ivanov, Fredrik Lundegård and Christel Möller to represent the brand and compose unique non-alcoholic cocktails (mocktails), to be served alongside the bottled drinks. All mocktails will have a chili touch – Caliente’s special ingredient.
“We’re super excited about this opportunity and for having three world-class bartenders representing our drinks. People everywhere are drinking less alcohol – 41% globally have decreased their consumption according to Canadean. And so I suppose cool mocktails is a natural new challenge for bartenders”, says Caliente’s founder Thomas Adner.
The Caliente Nobel Bartending Trio consists of:
Dosa Ivanov :
Norda Bar & Grill – Gothenburg
Winner of World Champion 2015 and Swedish Bartender Champion 2014 & 2015
Mat & Destillat, Lund
Winner - Swedish Bartender Champion 2016
Restaurang Astern, Borås
Finalist - Bartender of the Year 2016
Recipes and how-to-videos will be presented through Caliente’s social media channels. To get a first hand insight, please get in touch with marketing Director Erika Ollén: firstname.lastname@example.org
Caliente is a new kind of drink, in which we’ve replaced alcohol with chili heat. Because the stuff that makes chilies hot - capsaicin - also releases endorphins, creating a natural high. Crafted in Sweden from organic ingredients, it’s the ultimate choice for people who are after a complex non-alcoholic drink that’s low on sugar.
2015, Caliente won "Best Premium Adult Drink" at World Beverage Innovation Awards as well as "Best New Organic Drink" at Natural & Organic Awards Scandinavia. It is 100 % natural, organic and produced in Småland, Sweden.
