Cocktails in the City to return to Edinburgh

Promising cutting edge cocktails served by Edinburgh’s coolest bars, the UK’s largest cocktail festival – Cocktails in the City - has today announced it will be returning to Edinburgh.

Published: September 9, 2015

Over 1,000 people are set to attend the two day event, which will take place at Mansfield Traquair on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October.

A number of notable Edinburgh establishments are already confirmed to take part, including G&V Royal Mile Hotel, Harvey Nichols, 56 North, Juniper, The Voodoo Rooms, Chaophraya and Hoot the Redeemer.

A must visit for cocktail lovers and budding mixologists alike, the event will see bars and bartenders go head-to-head in a bid to win the coveted ‘Best Cocktail’ award.

Other awards, such as ‘Best Show Experience’, will encourage bar teams to be on full charm offensive while demonstrating their skills for flaring and mixing.

The event will also include a series of educational demos on how to create healthy cocktails or the best drink for the morning after the night before.

Andrew Scutts, Founder of Cocktails in the City, shared his excitement: “After an extremely successful 2014, Cocktails in the City is looking forward to bringing the festival back to the people of Edinburgh.

“With some of the capital’s best bars on board, and some exciting new additions for 2015, we can’t wait for audiences to experience what we have in store.

“Cocktails in the City has become something of a buzz word for the best place to sample innovative cocktails while watching the theatre of bartending – Edinburgh is no exception!”
