Bootleggers Trading is a boutique spirits importer and producer that finds passionate producers of exceptional spirits from around the world and introduces them to Thailand. The dedicated team at Bootleggers includes some of Thailand's top bartenders and spirits producers who want to make top quality cocktails the standard throughout the country.
Here at Bootleggers, our goal is to be Thailand's guide into the world of spirits. Through our education events, such as Rum Infusion classes and Beginner's Cocktail classes, we want to de-mystify spirits and cocktails one glass at a time.
Minway Chi had every job in the night-life industry in New York City, from DJing to Bartending. Moving to Thailand, he quickly grew tired of seeing the same brands over and over again while the rest of the world was going through a spirits Renaissance, so he decided to do something about it. Starting Bootleggers Trading with a few friends, the team now includes world class bartenders and Thai distillers working together to grow the cocktail culture in Thailand.
