The World's 50 Best Bars Brands Report 2015: Cocktails

08 January, 2015

Ocho was the top pour in the tequila category, so it makes sense it is our bartenders’ choice for its numberone vehicle, the Margarita. It pips Don Julio, with Tapatio a few back in third. 

For the Pisco Sour, our bars go Peruvian. Barsol and Campo de Encanto fight it out to be the choice pisco, with Machu Pisco also occupying high ground. 

The market is fragmented though, so bars are using many different pisco products.

It seems that Leblon is the cachaça brand choice of the world’s best bars. It is used as the spirit in the Caipirinha in 26% of cases. 

Eight bars of the 100 polled use Germana, with seven serving up Sagatiba.
