Luxardo hits the road for UK masterclass tour

Gareth Franklin

The company behind liqueur brand Luxardo will arrive in Dundee later this month as part of a UK masterclass tour.

The ‘Modify This’ sessions, which focus on the prominent role liqueurs can play in aperitifs, classic cocktails and original serves, are being hosted by Luxardo brand ambassador, Gareth Franklin.

In addition to the role of liqueurs in drinks serves, Franklin will also address bartending as a career, and how bartenders can progress through showcasing their creativity in forums such as competitions and social media.

“Heading to London is no longer the only option for career bartenders to move up to the next level,” said Franklin.

“Distinctive bars with their own style and ingenuity have always existed in every city. There are many ways for them to share their creativity and gain kudos within the industry. I see a great parallel between the way bartenders and bars outside London are regarded and the way liqueurs are perceived. It’s high time they both get a share of the limelight.”

Modify This will take place at The Blue Room in Dundee on April 23.
