The United Kingdom Bartenders Guild is delighted to announce that with the support of Bacardi Brown Forman, the arrangement for the NCC to select a bartender to represent the Guild at the World Championship in Warsaw in November are now in place.

There will be two qualifying heats, with the final being held in London. Full deatils of rules and dates may be found on the Guild website at ukbg.co.uk

The most important point is that for the qualifying heats, you only need to devise a “Twisted Tom Collins” recipe. Competitiors chosen to go through to the final will then have to devise an after dinner cocktail using ‘Gentleman Jack’ as the base spirit.

The dates for the qualifying heats are as follows:
Heat #1 London and Thames Valley Tuesday 7th June in London

Heat #2 Scotland and North of England Tuesday 21st June in Edinburgh

Final (Please check website for venues and times) Monday 4th July in London

Although you may not be participating, please feel free to come along and enjoy the day, perhaps meet some old (and not so old) friends and perhaps be chosen as a judge.
