Next Stop Paris For UK Monin Cup Champion

Joe Wild, from Jenny’s in Liverpool, is heading for Paris to compete against mixologists from around the world, following a resounding victory at the UK Monin Cup Final. Joe impressed the judges with his cocktail, All for One & One For All, featuring Monin’s new Lemongrass syrup, Monin Caribbean syrup, Monin Rose syrup and Monin Spicy Mango syrup, vodka, lemon juice, Prosecco and egg white. He will now go on to represent the UK in the International Monin Cup Final in Paris on December 1. Monin has been making authentic gourmet flavourings at their Bourges headquarters since 1912. Distributed in the UK by Bennett Opie, Monin premium syrups, sauces, liqueurs, fruit purees and frappe powders are used throughout the hospitality industry. The UK Final took place on the Tuesday of London Cocktail Week at the Monin Studio in Hoxton Square. Eight young bartenders from across the country shook, muddled and stirred their way through the competition in which Joe Macbeth from Lacehouse in Nottingham took second place and third place went to Jake Mellish from Boilermaker in Nottingham, who also impressed the judges with his brand research. Each finalist presented their take on the theme “If the UK were a cocktail” to a panel of judges including UK Monin Cup 2012 winner William Humphery, The Cocktail Lovers’ Gary Sharpen and Monin Brand Manager, Darril Ling. The drinks were judged on taste, balance, originality and visual presentation, with points also awarded for performance and interaction with the judges. The only stipulation was that each cocktail must contain at least 20ml of product from Monin’s extensive range. Competitors were then quizzed on their Monin product knowledge and put through their paces with a taste test, requiring them to blind taste ten Monin different syrups and correctly guess each flavour. As well as the honour of representing his country at the International Monin Cup Final in Paris on December 1, Joe also wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Monin’s headquarters in Bourges, France.

Worlds Most Lavish Food and Expensive Drink

Oct 07, 14 Worlds Most Lavish Food and Expensive Drink

Posted by in Industry News

A range of establishments are bringing our hugely expensive drink and expensive food. Recently an American-Diner style restaurant in Chelsea called Honky Tonk created what is claimed to be the world’s most expensive burger, which costs £1100 and contains around 2,618 calories – which is over the recommended daily intake for an adult man. So, you might be wondering what this burger contains – here’s just a quick summary of what goes into this burger: • 220g of Kobe Wagyu Beef • 60g of New Zealand Venison • Black Truffle Brie in the centre which makes a ‘liquid pocket’ once the burger is cooked • The patty is seasoned with Himalayan Salt with Canadian Lobster poached in Iranian Saffron • Bacon coated in maple syrup, beluga caviar and a hickory smoked duck egg covered in gold leaf The bun is seasoned with Japanese matcha (a powdered green tea), cream mayonnaise and coated in gold leaf • Garnished with a mango and champagne jus, grated white truffle As you can see, this burger has quite the mix of ingredients that make something truly unique. We at Bar News were wondering what kind of suitably expensive drink one might use to wash this beast down with, and so we started our research: The Tequilla Ley .925 turned out as the most expensive drink in the world, coming out at $3.5 million (Approximately £2,176,732) per bottle. Speaking of the bottle, this is probably the main reason for the drink’s expense, the bottle itself being covered in around 6,400 diamonds and being made primarily out of platinum and solid white gold. No-one has brought this bottle to current knowledge, but we’re sure it would go down well with the Honky Tonks’ burger. Runners-up to the position of most expensive alcohol include: The Henry IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne is over 100 years old and was produced by the Ley .925 – who also made the Tequila in first place. The bottle is a similar design, has been...

Oktoberfest 2014 Round-up

Oct 06, 14 Oktoberfest 2014 Round-up

Posted by in Event News

Oktoberfest is an annual festival that takes place in Munich in Bavaria, Germany. The festival has been taking place since 1810 and so has understandably evolved into a huge event whereby millions of people every year continuously attend the event. The main festival within Munich has strict rules placed upon the beer they allow within the event, the rules in question being that they have to follow Reinheitsgebot (often called the Bavarian Purity Law), an ancient set of rules based around the ingredients and production of the beer used within Oktoberfest. Additional events around the world take place in further celebration of this two-century-old event, including those events within the UK. Millions of gallons of beer are often served at these events, usually ensuring a thoroughly enjoyable night full the countless number of people involved. This year (2014), Oktoberfest started on the 20th of September and continued through to the 5th of October – the 5th being the first Sunday of October, the usual end time for Oktoberfest. The festival not only features a variety of Bavarian beers, but also a huge number of festival rides and numerous tents – each with their own themes, necessities and purposes. Among these tents is the Bräurosl, a tent with the capacity for 12,000 people originally made in 1913. The beer in question used in the event is designated Oktoberfest Beer, and is a part of the Club of Munich Brewers, of which Oktoberfest Beer is a registered trademark. The Club of Munich Brewers consists of the following six breweries: Augustiner-Bräu Hacker-Pschorr-Bräu Löwenbräu Paulaner Spatenbräu Staatliches Hofbräu-München These beers on average have a 2% stronger gravity than average beer. We hope that you all had fun in whichever Oktoberfest event you attended, the statistics would surely suggest that many of you did: • 6.3 million Guests attended Oktoberfest • 6.4 million Litres of beer were drunk The most popular souvenirs included: • Collectors’ Stone Mug • Hairbands with flowers • Mini beer steins • Pins With that year...
