East vs West at The Twelve Hotel Cocktail Expo

Galway’s Twelve Hotel is pitting east against west this coming Thursday 25th July, at The Twelve Hotel Cocktail Expo.

The event is taking place on Thursday 25th July from 7pm – 9pm on the front terrace at The Twelve, and is open to local bar tenders who want to brush up on their skills and to 12 members of the public who want to sample their creations.

Representing The Twelve Hotel and the west will be The Twelve Bar Manager Simon King. Simon will be up against Alan Moore from Peruke & Perwig, who has also worked in some of the capital’s best known cocktail bars including the The Dylan, and Lemuel’s.

Both contestants will be tasked with creating an Old Fashioned cocktail in their signature style using Buffalo Trace Bourbon, and then serving up a whiskey cocktail using Paddy Whiskey and a selection of pre-selected ingredients.

There will be a live DJ on the terrace and guests in attendance will have a chance to taste all the cocktail creations as well as vote for their favourite mixologist on the evening. There’s also a chance to experience the new Coca-Cola Signature Mixers range.
