The annual cocktail competition, organised by the UK Bartenders Guild (UKBG), saw 29 bartenders gather to compete for the £1,500 purse.

Held at London’s Hush Bar and supported by Montenegro Amaro Italiano, competitors were tasked with creating three cocktails to be presented in front of a panel of judges.

First up was the signature serve, followed by the bartender’s own creation before finally inventing a bespoke cocktail created with a mystery box of ingredients.

Nguyen impressed with his Negroni Twist and Kyoto Garden serves, and also triumphed in the mystery box category.
