It’s the Quintessential Gent’s favourite cocktail, but for a recipe which only has just two ingredients the debate whether it should be shaken or stirred, Olive or lemon, Dry or dirty will never end. Well fear not, for this Thursday ‘The World’s Best Martini Challenge’ returns to London for its final round . Boutique brands from all over the UK and Ireland have already competed in a number of gin-soaked heats and the final will see brands which include Arbikie Ak’s, Bertha’s Revenge, Kokoro, Lilliput Dorset, & Pothecary Gin competed to be crowned World’s Best Martini 2018.
Taking place at one of East London’s hottest bars, Oslo, the finale event will be a chance for the Contenders to showcase their two cocktails to an audience of industry names and the gin-loving public including myself. From £15 per ticket, attendees will be able to meet the gin-makers and sample martinis from each Contender gin, ultimately voting for their favourite. Gin aficionado and founder of The World’s Best Martini James Thomas says “We’ve had the good fortune and privilege to meet lots of friendly and enthusiastic people, dedicated to bringing all manner of gins to the world. This year’s event is going to be a lot of fun and we can’t wait to see what the audience, as well as our line-up of expert judges, decide is The World’s Best Martini of 2018.
