HAVANA, 3 December The Cuban bartender Yuleidi Sánchez will represent Cuba at the fourth edition of the Global Beefeater Bartender Competition (drinks with gin), to be held on January 15, 2015 in London, UK.
Sanchez took first place in a meeting of this kind held in the Hotel Riviera in Havana attended by dozens of colleagues from other tourist facilities in the country, as Varadero. The panel of judges in Havana was chaired by Sebastian Hamilton, ambassador of the brand of gin in the world, and composed of national bartenders and sommeliers.
The winner (34 years) presented an aperitif cocktail named El Cuervo, with which she earned her pass to international competition in London. This type of test is performed for the first time in Cuba and led the organization of the company Havana Club International SA, and support of the Association of Bartenders of Cuba (ACC).
Those attending the event of the Cuban capital were inspired by London culture to create their drinks, where the house Beefeater gin, considered the most awards of its kind in the world.
