Swizzle Masters Great British Gin finalists

22nd June, 2016 by Annie Hayes

This month Swizzlers were challenged to take inspiration from all things quintessentially British and come up with their own unique gin cocktail.


Daniel Cavalcante, bartender at 214 Bermondsey, was tasked with recreating entrant’s recipes

Using Greenall’s gin as the base spirit, and at least a dash of Wenneker liqueurs, we asked bartenders to celebrate all things great about Great Britain in cocktail form following on from the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Alessandro Paludet, bar development manager at Urban Leisure Group; and Alan Hunter, bartender at Antico Restaurant; joined me, Annie Hayes, social media editor at The Spirits Business, at 14 Bermondsey – where bartender Daniel Cavalcante took great care in recreating 10 of the most worthy recipes to their exact specifications for us to sample.

The results of this heat will be published in the July 2016 edition of The Spirits Business magazine.

Think your cocktails are up to scratch? The deadline for the next heat, Japanese Highball Twist, is on 14 July. Enter online now at www.swizzlemasters.com.
