Calling all bartenders, the Tio Pepe Challenge is back!

Join over 400 professional bartenders from across the globe to compete in the 2018 Tio Pepe Challenge. This competition offers bartenders the opportunity to discover the versatility of sherry and showcase their own creativity and skills with the cocktails they create.

The UK heat gives entrants the chance to win a 3 day trip to compete in the International Final at the Feria de Jerez in May. The UK Finalists will compete at the final on Tuesday 17th April at Hush Mayfair. The national winners will then battle it out, with their sherry cocktail creations, to be crowned the winner of the Tio Pepe Challenge 2018.

Come along to one of our masterclasses to kick start your sherry training and get in essential practice using the venencia! The first UK masterclass will take place on Monday 29th January at 2pm – 3.30pm in the Sir Roger Moor Room at Hush Mayfair, London. To secure your place email Karen Jaen on kjaen@gonzalezbyassuk.com.  Stay tuned for more masterclass dates coming soon.
