Let Sustainable Bartender Tom Egerton Pour You A Tall Drink At Bar Trigona
Collaboration With Chocolate Concierge
Never before done in Malaysia, Bar Trigona's Ingredient Focus Guest Shift arranges for guest mixologists to meet the farmers responsible for their ingredients. Earlier this year, Vijay Mudaliar took time off from Singapore's Native Cocktail Bar to tap into Malaysians' knowledge of palm wine, better known as 'toddy' on our streets.
This time, Tom Egerton and Ashish Sharma, head bartender of Bar Trigona, will forage for ingredients under Chocolate Concierge's lead. Spearheaded by Ong Ning Geng, the boutique chocolatier relies on farms in Pahang that produce much more than cacao fruit.

About 'The Gypsy Bartender'
Gallivanting across the globe while imbibing ideas (and spirits) along the way, New Zealander Tom Egerton is at home within the hospitality industry, where he's served for 15 years. Hong Kong was his base while serving as bar operations manager for the Potato Head Group.
The spokesman for sustainable bartending uses his social role to comment upon irresponsible mass consumption. Do our seemingly small sins really put a strain on the environment? Watch Egerton do the mind-boggling mathematics in a live speech filmed for TED Talks.
Bar Trigona will be serving four limited edition cocktails concocted by Tom Egerton for RM45 each.
