Sip samples and celebrate everything cocktail-y at Cayman Cocktail Week 2018. This fun annual event in the Cayman Islands is in its 6th run and, as usual, the word is it will be the best and biggest Cocktail Week to date.
From October 19th to the 26th, locals and tourists will gather almost every day to make their own Gin, go on a historical cocktail tour and meet top industry professionals.
Not going to be in the Cayman Islands that week? Not to worry! Throughout October, there will be special branded cocktail menus at various Cayman Island restaurants and bars. You’ll also find great deals on high-end cocktail ware at some Grand Cayman shops. Residents and visitors have fun trying drinks they might not normally order and picking up barware they weren’t necessarily planning to buy.
Some of Cayman’s best bartenders are out and about during Cayman Cocktail week, creating masterpieces that you’ll only find here on our islands. Quality events, top-shelf ingredients and, of course, amazing cocktails are the focus of this popular Cayman Islands event.
