Kalel Demetrio, often hailed as the “mad scientist/albularyo” of the beverage world, is known for his unconventional bar concepts, including Agimat at Ugat Foraging Bar in Poblacion, Makati. His creations, often served in unexpected vessels, have challenged traditional mixology norms. As a fervent advocate for the Philippines’ natural bounty, Demetrio draws on age-old culinary traditions to craft beverages that are both groundbreaking and deeply rooted in Filipino identity.
