Two spots in the STIR IT UP Grand Final have been decided. At our London heat, it was Sebastian Hollingworth from Skylight London and Alexander Aber from The Botanist Marlow that stormed through to the next round. Now, two more spots are up for grabs in Edinburgh and the competition is set to be fierce. See it for yourself at Edinburgh Uncovered or tune in for live coverage on our Facebook page.

If you missed out, this is not the end! We’re joining forces with Pernod Ricard in a STIR IT UP Wildcard round to give another bartender their chance to shine at the STIR IT UP final this May. Anyone working in the on-trade is able to enter the Wildcard round by uploading a video or photo of their signature cocktail by 12th April on Instagram using the hashtag #Stiritupwild and tagging @MatthewClarkltd and @PernodricardUK.
It’s one cocktail, one round and one Wildcard winner that will be whisked away to Ireland, hosted by the team behind Jameson Irish Whiskey.
