    Monday saw the UK’s top bartenders fight it out to win The Galvin Cup, now in its 9th consecutive year. The trophy was awarded to Daniel Stepien from Coq d’Argent, with Cacciola Gianfranco from Amaranto Bar at Four Seasons Park Lane coming second and Walter Neagu from The Amazing Red Bar at Marriott placing third. 

    The mixology competition, which offers professionals the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of a live panel of judges, was held at Quaglino’s restaurant and was sponsored by Babicka vodka.  Judges included Luca Cordilieri (UK Bartenders Guild) and the competition founder, Fred Sirieix with Chris and Jeff Galvin handing out trophies and Nigel Barden from The Chris Evans Show as MC.

    Competitors were put through their paces, having to create three cocktails on the day – the signature serve, their own cocktail creation and finally a final shake off, where mixologists were given a box of mystery ingredients to make a cocktail.  The drinks were all judged with the following three criteria; appearance, aroma and taste.

    Of the event, Sirieix, General Manager of Galvin at Windows and event founder said: ‘This year we had a great turn out and it was exciting to see the high standard of cocktails that were being produced’.
