Regional heats saw bartenders from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Bournemouth, Bristol and London put through their paces as Diageo Reserve judges David Sinclair, Ali Reynolds and Ervin Trykowski sought out creations that reflected the elements of Talisker, celebrating the brand’s new ‘Made By The Sea’ platform.

The heats, which spanned two weeks at events across the country saw the following bartenders declared as the inaugural Talisker cocktail competition finalists:

  • Rebecca Bevvy – The Laundrette Group – Manchester

  • Andrew Lennie – The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen – Edinburgh
  • Daniel Bovey – Be at One – Bristol
  • Mike Pendergast – East London Liquor Company – London

The Talisker ‘Race to Skye’ final will take place at the Talisker distillery in the Isle of Skye in August. The champion will be awarded the title of Talisker Ambassador* and will support in telling the brand’s story and communicating the Made by the Sea campaign. The winning bartender will also enjoy an enhanced PR campaign to help raise their profile in the drinks industry.
