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! Our next UK masterclass will take place on Monday 5th March at 1pm – 3.30pm at Bar Pepito in London. To secure your place email Karen Jaen on kjaen@gonzalezbyassuk.com.  Stay tuned for more masterclass dates coming soon.

To enter, register and upload your cocktail creation on the Tio Pepe Challenge website. Deadline for entry ends on 15th March 2018.
