Bartender Marzio Di Rocco recreated each entry to spec

For the penultimate round of The Wenneker Swizzle Masters, bartenders were tasked with using Courvoisier VSOP Cognac to create an elegant and classy cocktail inspired by the ‘roaring twenties’ – using at least a dash of Wenneker Liqueurs.

Judges gathered at The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone, where bartender Marzio Di Rocco crafted the top selected recipes to the exact specifications. Thomas Haring, general manager, The Harcourt; Nicola Poli, bartender, The Harcourt; Stephen Ruse, bar manager, Clarendon Cocktail Cellar; and Amy Hopkins, deputy editor of The Spirits Business, were charged with tasting the shortlisted recipes.

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