Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands is teaming up with five prestigious Edinburgh bars to celebrate Europe’s first Tales of the Cocktail On Tour.
Each bar will showcase a series of bespoke cocktails made from one of the five partner spirits and will be available to sample exclusively during the festival.
These tasting menus have been curated by some of the world’s most renowned cocktail experts, including International Bartender of the Year, Jack McGarry, Elliot Ball and Olly Brading from the Cocktail Trading Company and Marian Beke, the award-winning creative director at The Gibson Bar in London.
Shervene Shahbazkhani, UK head of advocacy at BBFB, said: “With a successful six-year legacy, Tales of the Cocktail on Tour is undoubtedly one of the most influential cocktail festivals in the world, so we’re thrilled to be involved in its first European venture – and what better place than Edinburgh! It is such a great city, with incredible culture and unbeatable talent.”
