As the cocktail renaissance of the 21st Century continues across the globe, there has never been a more exciting time to enter the bartending profession.

While the on-trade was once confined to serving rum and cokes, beer, and shots, intercepted with the odd Daiquiri or Mojito, the industry is now seeing greater experimentation and talent than ever before.

But a flair for true innovation is what separates the great and the good. One of the world’s foremost cocktail and spirits festivals Tales of the Cocktail recently endeavoured to recognise the world’s bartending greats when it announced the top 10 finalists for its International Bartender of the Year Spirited Award, spanning the international bar scene from London to Tokyo.

    I believe that Angus Porter, from the Radisson BLU hotel Glasgow should be nominated. He may have perfected the “Bloody Mary” and “Amaretto Sour” in his own unique way. Having him in your competition is only going to benefit you in your competition to see unique and different twists on cocktails. You will not regret your decision in having him participate.

    Kind regards
