This week has been a busy week and we have a undertaken another cocktail competition in association with the Scottish Society of Professional Bartenders.

Barman Bruce Hamilton from Ondine in Edinburgh has been crowned the winner of Edinburgh Gin’s new cocktail competition hosted in association with the Scottish Society of Professional Bartenders.

The competition put the city’s talent to the test with entries from all over Edinburgh. Bruce Hamilton impressed the judges with his excellent recipe and triumphed over competition from Edinburgh’s leading bartenders with his Edinburgh Gin ‘Edinburgh Citrusity’ cocktail

The winning drink was a refreshing mix of Gin, Aperol, Orange Juice, and Vermouth and will be seen in the Skinny magazine’s Cocktail column next month. The winner received a case of Edinburgh Gin and a bottle of Sheep Dip’s Old Hebridean 1990 Whisky. The runner up was Roddy Short from the Balmoral Hotel with his Edinburgh’s Orchard cocktail.

Judges were Martin Duffy, secretary of the Association of Scottish Bartender’s, Hattie Nicol and Bruce Borthwick both from Spencerfield Spirit. They all had a great time
