The show will include a bevy of talks and panel discussinos. International guests such as Alex Kratena and Monica Berg will be in town for their talk on ‘What the Amazonian jungle has in common with modern bartending’.

While Nick Strangeway will run a session on foraging and Henrik Hammer and Peter Altenburg will tackle ‘Cocktail Pairing with Scandinavian Cuisine - From Science into reality’. 

Copenhagen By The Glass will also be overlapped by Copenhagen Cooking Week, which runs from August 19-28, showcasing the best of Copenhagen’s cocktail scene.
