Brockmans Gin announced the winners of the 2018 Brockmans World Gin Day competition, a contest to find “the world’s favorite #Brocktail.” This year’s competition attracted 242 entries from bars in 18 countries. By public vote, bartender Kal Ruparell from Leicester, UK took home first place with his Brockmans Gin inspired Betty Brown (aka Gin-Dependant-Woman) cocktail. The two runners-up: Anton Maltsev Gonzatti of Moscow and Tuca Di Matheo of Portugal. In addition to the global winners, four U.S. based bartenders received Merit Awards as top vote getters with #Brocktail, Susanoo by Engine Room in Mystic, submitted by Bartender Torin Quinn, among them. The three global winners and four U.S. Merit Award winning bartenders will join Brockmans Gin at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.
