World Class UK winner hosts NYC pop-up

28th July, 2016 by Annie Hayes

After securing the title of Diageo Reserve GB World Class Bartender of the Year 2016, Aidan Bowie of London’s Dandelyan will host a one-night pop-up bar in New York City.


Bowie has created four bespoke serves for the event

Bowie, who was crowned winner of World Class UK back in June, has partnered with Llama Inn in Williamsburg to open a World Class pop up bar on 3 August.

Open for just one night only, the pop-up will see Bowie serve four bespoke cocktails using Don Julio Blanco, Tanqueray No. TEN, Bulleit and Ron Zacapa, paired to Llama Inn’s Peruvian food menu.

Bowie, senior bartender at Dandelyan, said: “I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to partner with Llama Inn for this exclusive one-night pop up. Since the GB World Class final, I have been doing everything I can to prepare for September’s global final in Miami, including a pretty intense boot camp for all winners from Western Europe.

“As I was on-route across the pond for Tales of the Cocktail anyway, it was the perfect opportunity to explore cocktail culture and drinking trends in this amazing market – and search out inspiration for my World Class global final serves and challenges.”

Dandelyan was awarded the title of World’s Best Cocktail Menu at the 10th annual Spirited Awards at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail festival.
