This occasion was fun: I liked the electrifying atmosphere of enthusiasm mixed with tension.

Of course this competition was special because it stood out as a non-alcoholic contest:
I took the great risk (and gamble) of trying a personal cocktail based on liquorice – a tricky ingredient which in principle is not to everybody’s taste. I was glad it went smoothly.

On this occasion there were fewer competitors but certainly they all did a great job and I feel that the contest was very close. This is understandable as among my colleagues there were bartenders from the best known bars in London.

i am grateful to the Jury for selecting my cocktail – “LIQUOLADA” and i feel honoured to represent the UKBG in the Grand Final in Prague for the Mattoni Competition and I want to reassure them of my determination to do my best
