The Classic Cocktail Competition

The Classic Cocktail Competition, a one-day cocktail showdown for pub, bar, hotel and restaurant bartenders, is back for 2024!

Its mission is to encourage bartenders to spend more time thinking about how to serve spectacular classic cocktails to UK customers.

At the event, 15 elite bartenders are required to make six different classic cocktails each, all served in their own signature style. Cocktails are scored on: balance of flavours, overall taste/enjoyment, presentation, knowledge and skill.

Last year, Ed Garner, area training manager for bar group Nightcap, was crowned a UK cocktail champion after dominating the inaugural Classic Cocktail Competition on 16 October 2023.
