World Class UK 2012: The People’s Vote
Tell us who you think should be the UK’s best bartender for a chance to win the Diageo Reserve Brands portfolio
Come the end of Monday 28 May we will know which six of the 20 UK finalists will go through to the Western Europe Finals. But if you had to choose just one outright winner, who would it be? Get your votes in now…
And that’s not all. Tell us your favourite bartender and why and you could win a bottle each of the premium spirits in the Diageo Reserve Brands portfolio. That’s right, all seven products, worth somewhere in the region of £400. Make way in your drinks cabinet for:
Tanqueray No. TEN gin–One of our absolute favourites, this award-winning, fresh-tasting gin is hand-crafted in small batches and makes a mighty fine Classic Dry Martini.
Don Julio tequila–Luxury, craftsmanship and incredible know-how combine in the bottles in the Don Julio portfolio, each taking their name from the man who spent 40 years perfecting the craft of tequila making.
Ketel One vodka–If you thought all vodkas were bland, try this baby out for size. Distilled from wheat and handcrafted in small batches by the Nolet family in Holland, this ultra-premium product packs an impressive punch.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label whisky–Super-smooth, ultra-sexy, multi award-winning whisky created using some of the rarest malts and most superior grains around. The tipple of choice for whisky connoisseurs.
Talisker whisky–The exceptional product from the only Single Malt distillery on the Isle of Skye. Don’t take our word for the quality of the taste, Robert Louis Stevenson even mentioned it in his poem, The Scotman’s Return from Abroad penned in 1880.
Zacapa 23 rum–The fact this uber tasty rum is aged and blended in the ‘house in the clouds’, nearly 8,000 ft above the sea in Guatemala gives it its unique character and taste – the cool climate makes for less evaporation and a richer, smoother, more aromatic drinking experience.
Grand Marnier liqueur–A deliciously moreish liqueur made from a delicate blend of fine cognacs and distilled essence of zingy and fresh tropical oranges.
