A GLASGOW bartender enjoyed a trip to Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans after winning a global competition with Brockmans gin.
Sebastian Stanczyk, of The Spiritualist on Miller Street, won the Brockmans World Gin Day competition, which attracted entries from 12 countries, with his Ginto the Wild creation.
Stanczyk travelled with runners up from Germany and Russia to Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans last month.
“The trip to Tales was extraordinary,” said Stanczyk.
“The team at Brockmans spoiled us at all times. “
Having tasted victory in the competition, the mixologist now has a thirst for more success.
“I am very proud of winning; it shows how many people believe in me,” he added.
“It’s amazing to be part of a global tournament; that’s my biggest achievement so far and I’m not planning to stop here.”
