Ultimate Bartender Challenge 2016 at Brewdog

13 participants stepped up to the challenge at The Brew Dog in Aberdeen for the first heat of Ultimate Bartender Challenge 2016.

There was an eager crowd gathered to witness a very close competition with contenders struggling most on the nosing round. The heat was eventually won by Jonathon Arthur, a local barman. As it stands Jonathon is top of the national leaderboard and is heading to New Orleans for the final in a few months unless his score can be beaten. He was also awarded a limited editition Konga Shaker, the revolutionary cocktail shaker from Monkey Shoulder as a prize.

Monday the competition arrives in Glasgow and then it moves onto Edinburgh Tuesday. There’s still time to sign up for both heats, either as a spectator or a challenger.
