Philip Augustin (Phil) – Beverage Manager at Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa, who is currently working on a menu for the famous Sandbox Bar next to the pool as well as a menu for the modern lifestyle Lounge Bar at Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa… let us share some of his story with you.
Get to known Phil
My name is Phil and I am a passionate mixologist working in Bars and Restaurants for almost 10 years now. I started my career as a waiter in a small club near the place in Germany where I was born.
Inspiration to become a passionate mixologist
Working with food and beverages in big teams was always very inspiring and exciting for me. While I was working in Cologne(Germany), Zurich(Switzerland) and London(England) I made fantastic experiences and met many different people from all over the world.
Never tired of trying new things and pushing my own skills up to the limit I worked my way up to become a Bar Manager in London, managing both, classic American cocktail bars as well as high volume lounge bars.
To find the difference
My inspiration to become a Beverage Manager in Phuket came from my thirst for new and exotic ingredients just like fruits, spirits and herbs as well as the working with different cultures in a completely different environment far away from Europe.
The key of your menus
The key for my own menus is to combine the best out of everything that I have/find – I put my whole experience and knowledge together with local ingredients, creative ideas from my team plus homemade products and give all this to the people I spend most of my time with at work to build a package that finishes in great drinks created and served by great people for the ultimate guest experience.
How special is your create menu?
These menus will be very special because they will be a well-balanced combination out of all the things we do best as a team while also reflecting the great things that Phuket itself has to offer.
It is very important to me to show our guests all the things that we are good in to create a unique experience for each and every single person. Our skills mixed with local ingredients and special presentations are going to change the beverage experience here in Phuket and I am sure that the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa will be the place to be in terms of Drinks in the near future.
