Organiser of the event Gary Anderson commented… ‘After six months of taste-testing we are thrilled to finally reveal the bars that we have chosen to take part in the first Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend. Our vision is to bring the city to life with cocktails and create unique experiences through exciting brand collaborations and pop-up spaces. It’s all about tasting your way around the city, discovering new bars & flavours, and feeling like you’re part of something exciting. For me, cocktails epitomise catching-up with friends, either after work on a Friday night or getting dressed-up at the weekend and hitting the town, and that’s what we are hoping to see during the weekend. We’re working with the best brands and bars so all ECW cocktails are made using premium spirits and are shaken, stirred and strained to perfection.’
