Karol Rybicki of The Sanderson wins La Brasserie’s first inter-bar cocktail competition
On Sunday evening La Brasserie in Brompton Cross, South Kensington hosted their first inter-bar cocktail competition. The winner was Karol Rybicki of The Sanderson.
Six bars entered in total and representatives from each were given five minutes to showcase their drink in an event conceived by barman Alejandro Flores. Each was judged by comedian and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer, Matthew Steeples of The Steeple Times and La Brasserie owner Peter Godwin.
Karol Rybicki won first prize and took home a bottle of Krug. He was followed in second and third places by Ernest Reid of Boisdale Canary Wharf and Stáňa Turková of Cassis in South Kensington. A surprise last minute entry came from Jonathan Zammit-Tabona, the brand ambassador for Langley’s No. 8 gin and the guests who travelled furthest to attend were Bill and Lucy Coker, the owners of the Red Iguana in Salt Lake City, Utah.
