VIDEO: Ultimate Bartender Championship is back for 2016

Monkey Shoulder

The Ultimate Bartender Championship for Monkey Shoulder whisky was launched last night, with the release of this video featuring lots of familiar faces.

The competition will tour the UK, offering five top-scoring bartenders the prize of an all-expenses-paid trip to the final at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans this summer.

This video features Monkey Shoulder UK brand ambassador Grant Neave, global brand ambassador Dean Callan, William Grant & Sons’ head of whisky Mark Collins, Alastair Burgess of London bar Happiness Forgets, and Ryan Chetiyawardana of London bars White Lyan and Dandelyan.
