UKBG #NCC2021 Semi-Finalists Announced!

A massive thank you to each and every bartender from across the country and high seas that entered their Sake recipe for the UKBG 2021 National Cocktail Competition! We’ve narrowed our entries down to 54 semi-finalists who have been invited to the next stage – which involves a seminar with our sponsors, Hatozaki Whisky, followed by the regional semi-finals. Congratulations to the following mixologists and their venues / businesses. We’ve been really impressed by the imagination and ambition in your recipes. We’d also like to send a special shout out to a couple venues and companies that really got behind encouraging their workers to enter – Cunard, Ivy Collection, Dorchester Collection, Mango Cocktail Club, Roka – who have all had multiple qualifying entrants!
