Sweet & Sour accompany delicious berries and Gin. The sublime Bramble is just one reason why Dick Bradsell is considered the father of modern classic and British twist cocktails.
In honour of his legacy and talent we are delighted to announce The UKBG Bramble Competition together with Plymouth Gin & Pernod Ricard to be held on the 25th November 2019 at Genuine Liquorette in London.
We are searching London* to find the best “Twist on the Bramble Cocktail” using at least 40ml Plymouth Gin. You do need to be a member of the UKBG residing in London* to participate. Membership is free and you can join here.
*Due to high demand, this competition is now open to all UK based bartenders but please note that the selected finalists will not be reimbursed any expenses for travel to/from London or accommodation that they may require in order to participate in the competition or claim any prizes.
Competitors have full free expression of ingredients and flavours, but you must use at least 40ml Plymouth Gin in your recipe.
The 8 selected finalists will be awarded with a VIP trip to the Plymouth distillery for an educational tour and masterclass ahead of the final competition to be held on the 25th November at Genuine Liquorette in London where each competitor will be given 8 minutes to present a Classic Bramble alongside their “Twist of the Bramble”
Competitors and their drinks will be scored on the following criteria: Appearance, Aroma, Taste, Knowledge, Presentation, Name, Story Telling, Technical Execution and relevance to the competition brief.
With courtesy of Pernod Ricard, Plymouth Gin will be provided on the day. You only need to bring your personal ingredients, tools, glassware and what you believe to be the most innovative and iconic Modern Classic – Bramble Cocktail.
“All bartenders are invited to bring their friends along and join us all at the final on the 25th November to wish everyone a great Christmas season ahead. We look forward to seeing you.”
“This is an opportunity to join the UKBG, meet the best of our industry and most importantly have a memorable and fun day. You do need to be a member of the UKBG residing in London* to participate. Membership is free and you can join here.
