Angostura has crowned bartender Thomas Gendy-Higham of Bibi’s Italianissimo in Leeds as the UK winner of its Global Cocktail Challenge 2018.

Gendy-Higham will go on to represent the UK at the global final in Trinidad next February, competing against top bartenders for a chance to win a grand prize of US$10,000, plus a two-year contract as Angostura Global Brand Ambassador.

Taking inspiration from the heart and soul of Trinidad and Tobago, Gedney-Higham’s winning cocktail, named J’ouvert, used a combination of ingredients and colours to represent the coming together of classes during carnival time.
