Förra veckan avgjordes drinktävlingen Bacardí Legacy – som i år hölls i Moskva.

Vinnare blev Englands representant Tom Walker med sin drink ”Maid in Cuba”. Sveriges representant Mattias Skoog, och hans drink “Rumpletini Nr 2”, tog sig till semifinal, vilket vi tycker låter bra!

Så här låter pressmeddelandet om vinnaren och hans drink:

The Maid in Cuba embodies what we look for in a legacy cocktail,” says David Cordoba, Bacardí Global Ambassador. “It achieves the perfect mix of the perfect ingredients, offering a balance and flavor and simplicity that I believe will endure and make it a classic of the future. The competition this year has been the highest standard ever and we have been blown away by the talent of the bartenders and the quality of their cocktails. It was incredibly close, but Tom is a worthy winner
