Tonic’s Ryan Snedden to represent Scotland at cocktails!

BLCC UK finalists 2015

Ryan Snedden from Tonic, Edinburgh, is Scotland’s representative in the UK final of this year’s BACARDÍ Legacy Cocktail Competition which takes place in London on 10th November.

Eight bartenders were selected to go through to the national final during the five regional heats, which were held in London, Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester and Belfast during September.

The regional winners will go head-to-head in the UK final in front of a panel of industry experts, including global rum ambassador, Ian Burrell; The Savoy’s Chris Moore; BACARDÍ Brown-Forman Brands’ Head of UK Trade Advocacy, Marc Plumridge; and BACARDÍ Global Ambassador, Dickie Cullimore. The final three will then receive a budget to execute a promotional campaign to generate support for their BACARDÍ cocktail over the following four months. The bartender with the most successful campaign will then compete against top bartenders from around the world in the global final of the BACARDÍ Legacy Cocktail Competition, taking place in San Francisco in April 2016. .
