Cuban bartender Vladimir Marquez will visit London in 2020 and will have official contacts with the manufacturers of the gin brand Beefeater, after winning in Havana a cocktail competition with that product.
A report from the Cuban Bartenders Association (ACC) indicated that Marquez was the absolute winner of the 7th edition of the Beefeater MIXLDN 2019 International Cocktail Competition held last week.
The Cuban specialist will represent Latin America during a visit to the factory of this important gin in London, United Kingdom. Gerardo JouveSolis, the brand's ambassador, said that the nomination of Marquez is a great pride for the region's bartenders.
The event was sponsored by the iconic British brand and seeks the creativity of bartenders around the world.
Beefeater London DryGines is the number one premium gin in the world and especially in Spain, the largest gin market in Europe; and the third in the United States, the largest global market for premium gins on the planet, the organizers of the Cuban's visit to London indicated.
