Monin Cup – International Final Results

In Competitions

BarLifeUK were part of the judging panel for the UK final of the Monin Cup…

Will, looking dapper as ever…

…and were immensely impressed with the standard of drinks – both alcoholic and mocktail.

William Humphery of Bristol’s Hausbar won the right to represent the UK at the competition’s Paris-based international final at the Montparnasse Tower this month, stacked up against 26 other competitors from around the world.

James Coston, Monin UK brand ambassador told us: “It was an amazing competition, with plenty of innovation, flair and creativity on display… There were some truly delicious and fantastic-looking drinks produced.”

Maia Iljina from Estonia was declared the winner, impressing judges with her cocktail, La Vie en Rose – which featured Le Fruit de Monin Strawberry, Monin Peach Syrup, Monin Amaretto syrup, dry gin and cream – and her non-alcoholic Oasis, which included Le Fruit de Monin Strawberry, Le Fruit de Monin Passion Fruit, Perrier and basil leaves.

William Humphery placed a respectable tenth out of 27 competitors.

His cocktail, Oliver’s Twist, comprised Martin Millers Gin, Kamm & Sons Ginseng Spirit, Monin Fig Syrup and Monin Creme De Cacao Blanc.

It was stirred in a Thermos flask then served in a cocktail glass garnished with a red rose infused with chocolate bitters.
