Wenneker Swizzle Masters Blood and Sand finalists

The final heat of The Wenneker Swizzle Masters 2017 gave bartenders the task of creating the classic Scotch serve Blood and Sand, which takes its name from Rudolph Valentino’s 1922 silent film.

For this final instalment of this year’s competition, bartenders were challenged to take on the classic Scotch serve and make it their own using Dewar’s 12 Year Old – along with at least a dash of any Wenneker Liqueur.

Judges gathered at private members’ club The Kings Head in London’s Dalston, where bartender Michal Katiuszyn crafted the top 10 selected recipes to their exact specifications.

Nicola Thompson, director of Fifteen71; Julie Cambell, wine and spirits consultant; and Nicola Carruthers, senior staff writer at The Spirits Business, were charged with tasting the shortlisted recipes.

The results of this heat will be published in the October 2017 edition of The Spirits Business magazine.
