Glasgow Cocktail Week Releases Cocktail Maps To Launch Festival
Glasgow Cocktail Week in partnership with Diageo World Class started today and to celebrate they have announced festival maps for cocktail safaris and all drinks for their showstopping Cocktail World popup event set in the iconic Argyle Street Arches.
Over 55 bartenders from across the globe will descend on Glasgow this week and battle it out to become the World Class 2019 Bartender of the Year, with the live final taking place on Thursday (26 September) in SWG3.
To celebrate the World Class final, Glasgow Cocktail Week will shine the spotlight on Diageo’s Reserve portfolio, with ticket holders able to unlock over 150 signature cocktails across the city with their Glasgow Cocktail Week wristband during the festival.
Over 40 venues have created at least two signature serves on exclusive GCW menus which guests can enjoy when they flash their GCW Wristband for only £5.
Leading venues taking part include the exotic basement oasis of Tiki on Bath St, the sophisticated surroundings of Raddison Red and Dakota, dive bar The Dam in Merchant City, and recently opened East End bar, The Gate. Three venue maps have been created to help plan cocktail safaris across the city.
