It was a tough competition but there could only be one winner and that was Jamie MacDonald from The Raconteur in Edinburgh. He went head-to-head with Julian de Feral from Lutyens in London to stun the judges with his Ketel One ‘Chaste’ cocktail, lovingly blended with Martini Rosso, Benedictine, tobacco bitters and Caol Ila 12 year-old. We caught up with him in his first exclusive interview as Diageo World Class UK 2011 winner straight after the announcement was made.
