    The Galvin Cup will celebrate this year its 5th birthday on the 23rd May and our partner Martini will celebrate their 100th birthday. 2011 is a big significant landmark for us, this is why we have chosen Whisky Mist at the London Hilton on Park Lane to host the competition this year. We are back where we first started on 2007.

    In 5 years so much has changed on the London restaurant and bar scene.

    Who would have believed then that the BBC would commission a series on Service and Hospitality to show case our industry? "Michel Roux Service" clearly demonstrated how much people can achieve with determination, hard work, self belief and a good attitude. The potential for anyone who wants to succeed is huge-It is such a challenging and rewarding environment!

    There is much more recognition and awareness nowadays for front of house staff and careers however this is not near enough what the industry deserves or needs. The negative and false perception which are so embedded into our culture in the UK can only change if we work together to promote and celebrate our so exciting profession. 

    Let’s not look at what the government or the councils or anybody else can do for us but rather what we can do for ourselves and the people that come into our industry. It is our role and our responsibility to make a difference and be counted for and this is what the Galvin Cup has been aiming to do.

    We count on your support and look forward to seeing you on the 23rd May!

    Good luck and happy mixing!

    Glenmorangie are delighted to be associated with the Galvin Cup, and applaud the spirit of learning and mentoring which it epitomises. We are delighted to offer a two day experience to the winner of the Galvin Cup professional and students competition. The exact itinerary will depend on what is going on at the distillery at the time, but is likely to include some of the following activities. 

    A trip to Tarlogie Springs (the water source for Glenmorangie) & picnic.

    An in depth tour of distillery to include;  sampling the mashing (tasting worts), tasting of fermented wash. Some time in the filling store to work with the casks and select some casks for use in the 'Extra Mature Range'.
    A trip to see the Cadboll stone; the old pict stone which forms the emblem of Glenmorangie, and have a tasting of Signet at the stone.
    A visit to the maltings at Glen Ord where the barley is malted prior to use at the distillery.

    Accomodation would be at the world famous 'Glenmorangie House' - a mecca for whisky fans from around the world, and this would provide a great opportunity to meet and mix with other whisky enthusiasts.

    This is it! The Galvin Cup 2010 is open for entries

    This is it!

    Following 3 months of intense organization, the Galvin Cup 2010 is ready to go and this year promises to be even more exciting than the previous three. Westminister and Kingsway College who recently celebrated their Centenary, with HRH The Prince of Wales as guest of honour, will be the host of our competition on Tuesday, 8th June. 

    Here at Galvin at Windows we’re all very proud of the event itself but even more so of what the Galvin Cup represents especially in this tough economic climate. By that I mean excellence, drive, ambition and the desire to be at the top level of such an exciting and rewarding industry.

    Across the industry a lot has been done and is currently being done to promote and foster talents as well as inspire youngsters, but this is not nearly enough. We hope that you will support us in this initiative and even if you’re not competing, you’ll come to watch the event live on the day.

    To keep things exciting, we have a few surprises which you’ll only be able to find out on the day... Hope to see all of you on the 8th!

    Good luck to everyone who enters, and may the best win!

    Fred.
