Mitchell Lum (aka ‘Kai’) has been a part of the Bacardi-familia for two years, within the Asia, Middle East and Africa region. Since his start date in October 2016, he has taken up the helm as the Head of Advocacy/Brand Ambassador of South-East Asia. Based in Bangkok, Thailand, he has been an integral member of the development of the cocktail scene and culture since first arriving early 2014.
His eagerness to show the country his passion for cocktails has led him to being awarded in several competitions. But most notably, he represented Thailand in the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition 2016, landing the “Top 8” spot worldwide. It was there that he recognized the comradery and family amongst Bacardi Ambassadors and international bartenders alike. Upon returning to Thailand, he quickly advanced Bacardi Thailand in the hopes of becoming a mentor or active member of Bacardi’s activities for the years to come. To his surprise Bacardi met his wishes, and offered the role of Brand Ambassador (Thailand/Philippines/Vietnam) to lead their advocacy and training programs.
