Bartenders gearing up for gin masterclasses

SCOTTISH bartenders are gearing up to broaden their gin knowledge at two masterclasses being run by Brockmans early next month.

Brockmans Martini
The gin producer is set to stage the events in Glasgow bar Cup on August 2 and The Jolly Botanist in Edinburgh the following day.
Hosted by Brockmans brand ambassador Mike Whatmough, both events will kick off with a masterclass, giving bartenders the chance to learn more about the 40% ABV gin and its 11 botanicals, followed by a cocktail demonstration by David Craig – winner of the 2016 World Gin Day International Cocktail Competition.
Then, it will be over to bartenders to come up with their own Brockmans-based creations as each event is brought to a close with a cocktail competition. The best three cocktails at each event will be shortlisted, with each bartender receiving a bottle of Brockmans, and an overall winner will be presented with a limited edition leather Brockmans apron.
