Naz Arjuna won the inaugural Giffard Asian Cup with his brand new Smoked Banana Pancakes cocktail.  As the Asian champion, he will meet other regional champions in the World Final, in France, on 13 May.

The Giffard West Cup has expanded and embraced Asian talent for the first time.  On Tuesday 5 March, eight of Singapore’s most talented, professional mixologists gathered at the Sentosa Sky Loft and were challenged to create a new and original cocktail that contained at least 10ml of any Giffard Premium Liqueur.
