Just 1 Week Until The World Cocktail Championship!

image008The gorgeous and historic city of Prague will host the 62nd IBA World Cocktail Championship 2013.  Some of the world’s greatest bartenders are already beginning to arrive for what will be an exceptional, weeklong celebration of all things cocktail that gets underway on 16 August.

The World Cocktail Championships consist of a number of different competitions.  There is all the drama and showmanship of Flairtending and a whole range of classic cocktail competitions including Pre-dinner, After Dinner, Long Drink, Sparkling Drink and Fancy Drink categories. Each contestant has competed at a national level and won the honour of representing their country.

All of the events will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the Prague Hilton.  Qualifying for the Flairtending competition commences on Monday 19 August and the finals for most of the categories take place the following day, with the championship concluding with a Gala Dinner and the World Cocktail Championship Super Final on Wednesday 21 August.

We are very proud that Giffard liqueurs have been chosen by a number of national guilds and will be mixed with other great brands in both the Flairtending and Classic competitions.  We will be there in force to support the many flairtenders and mixologists competing this year and live reporting from the event, so please come and say hello.

About Giffard Liqueurs & Syrups

Giffard is a family owned liqueurs and syrups company based in Angers, Val de Loire, France. Our founder, Emile Giffard, was a dispensing pharmacist who combined his professional skills with Gallic gourmet curiosity and in 1885 invented a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur called Menthe Pastille. Four generations later, Giffard remains committed to quality, natural produce in all our liqueurs and syrups because we believe that flavour is always the best ingredient. Please drink responsibly.
