This September, the spotlight is on Negronis at Nautilus, the destination bar at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta. As part of “POURED by Four Seasons,” Nautilus will celebrate Negroni Week from September 12 to 18, followed by another week of Negroni-inspired festivities until September 25, 2022.
Inspired by the spice trade of 16th century Indonesia, Nautilus is an intimate destination bar that celebrates the nostalgia of seafaring traditions. Woven around the incredible flavors of the archipelago, the creative cocktail menu skillfully blends premium spirits and sustainable ingredients with modern mixology techniques.
As an homage to the #1 classic cocktail, resident storyteller and head bartender Henry “Ale” Maraben Siktimu presents two fascinating cocktails that tip their hat to the 1919 Italian original while adding his very own Nusantara touch. The Coco Pandan Negroni uses fat-washed coconut oil Bulldog gin and homemade pandan liqueur along with Cinzano Rosso vermouth and Campari. The Nutmeg Negroni gives a new twist to the classic cocktail, replacing gin with nutmeg-infused Wild Turkey bourbon whiskey along with homemade shiraz reduction, Cinzano Rosso vermouth and, of course, Campari. Giving Ale’s creations company on the limited-period special Negroni menu are two cocktails curated by Argo Bar, Four Seasons Hong Kong (Black Pearl) and Charles H., Four Seasons Seoul (Café Negroni).
As part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of Negroni Week, a global initiative created by IMBIBE Magazine and Campari, Nautilus will donate a portion of the sale of Negroni cocktails to a dedicated charitable fund managed by Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries.
The Negroni Week Fund will directly contribute to Slow Food’s international projects while also supporting the hospitality community, the preservation of cultural and biological diversity, and the promotion of food and beverage education and knowledge exchange.
