Beefeater MIXLDN finalists announced

24 January, 2017

Pernod Ricard has announced the Beefeater MIXLDN cocktail competition finalists ahead of the global final in London.

Taking place at the Bike Shed in Shoreditch on February 9, Beefeater MIXLDN is in its sixth year.

Finalists from 31 countries will take part this year, presenting cinematically themed creations to a panel which includes: Nathan O’Neill, head bartender at Nomad NY; Evelyn Chick, MIXLDN 2015 global champion and Beefeater Master Distiller, Desmond Payne.

In addition to being crowned the Beefeater MIXLDN global champion, this year’s winner will also have the opportunity to work with Desmond Payne to create, craft and produce their own limited edition gin.

Desmond Payne, Beefeater master distiller said: “We’re thrilled to be offering the winner of this year’s MIXLDN competition the opportunity to create their own gin. It is a hugely rewarding process and allows the distiller to experiment with complex flavours and balance them to create something truly unique.

"We at Beefeater are committed to innovation, and while we remain loyal to the traditional process of creating London dry gins, we always look to develop new and innovative products. I look forward to seeing what our finalists bring to the competition and working with the winner on this very exciting project.”
