World Class GB, Burst 2 – who made the cut

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Just when you thought things were calming down on the cocktail competition front, along comes another good ‘un.  We’re talking the second burst of World Class GB, so definitely worth shouting about. Check out the 50 who will be polishing up their shaking skills and refining their patter ahead of the second Masterclass on 29th April. The final five will join Luca Corradini, Jamie Jones, Kyle Wilkinson, Tim Laferla and Jon Hughes at the GB Finals at Drummuir Castle in June – check with us for updates.
