There's been a slew of pop-up bars in Sydney lately — but none that deliver a message quite as blatant as Trash Tiki. It's operating waste-free and travelling the world showing customers and bar owners how to do it too.

In the hopes of drawing attention to over-consumption and single-use ingredients in the craft cocktail industry today, UK bartenders Kelsey Ramage and Iain Griffiths have designed the pop-up to be a launchpad for a conversation on waste.

Trash Tiki will set up at Ramblin' Rascal Tavern on Sunday, December 3. The drinks selection will be themed around junk and the night's signature sip will be the Sailor's Grave, made from Martell VSOP, Armagnac, Brookie's Slow Gin, watermelon rind cordial, cinnamon and Peychaud's Bitters. You'll also be able to get your hands on a Young Henrys Junk Ale — it's a brown ale made from spent and surplus malt, mash and hops from other brews that are usually put straight in the bin.

Sydney is the 25th stop for the globe-trotting pop-up. It's travelled Europe, Asia, South America and the US, with plans to head to Brisbane and Melbourne in the next few months.
