The Bulgari Hotel was the setting for the London heat of Beluga Vodka’s Signature competition. A global competition, the London round saw 13 of the best bartenders go head to head, creating a modern twist on a classic that represented where each bartender was from and the journey that they have taken.
The 13 participants were shortlisted to six for the second round where Beluga Gold Line was presented in an iconic serve.
Three well deserved winners – Daniel Stępień from the Rivoli Bar at The Ritz, Enrico Gonzato from Dandelyan and Francesco Cama from City Social – will now compete in the national final in July along with the best bartenders that Edinburgh has to offer in the hope of representing the UK at the global final in St Petersburg later in the year.
The overall winner will attend the Tales of the Cocktail festival in New Orleans in 2018 representing Beluga as the Global Brand Ambassador.
