Recently our Church studio was the venue for the 3rd World Class Workshop in the search for the Worlds Best Bartender. This is the most prestigious mixology programme in the drinks industry, celebrating the skills and craft of the best bartenders in Cape Town. The winner of this regional final would go on to the National Final to vie for a place among the world’s top 50 mixologists at the Global Final in London.
RESERVE brands are the world’s leading portfolio of luxury spirits, including iconic and award-winning brands such as CIROC Vodka, TANQUERAY No TEN gin, DON JULIO tequila, JOHNNIE WALKER GOLD LABEL RESERVE blended scotch whisky, JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL blended scotch whisky, JOHNNIE WALKER PLATINUM 18, Lagavulin 16, Talisker 10, Caol ila 12 and Singleton of Dufftown 12. Hosted in conjunction with leading consumer and trade partners, WORLDCLASS has been established to promote South Africa’s leading bars and bartenders to discerning consumers worldwide and promises to be one of the most anticipated events on the bar industry calendar this year.
Ophelia Ross of Hammer Live Brands tells us more about WorldClass and why they chose our photographic studio in Woodstock to host this prestigious event. “WorldClass, the South African search for the best cocktail bartender took place in Cape Town on 1st to 3rd July 2014. The Cape Town 3rd regional leg was held at Roodebloem Studios as the space was a wonderful blank canvas for us to showcase the WorldClass portfolio. As a custodian of the brand it is important to always find the right spaces that ties in with the sophisticated luxury of the portfolio. The studio allowed for just that.”
