Arbikie Gin Wins World’s Best Martini Challenge

Remember the World’s Best Martini Challenge we told you about?

Well, we have a winner!

The Showcase Martini made with Arbikie AK’S Gin was crowned the winner at trendy East London restaurant & bar Olso Hackney last week and took home the giant martini glass trophy.

Arbikie Gin’s brought a taste of local Scottish botanicals to the competition with their Showcase Martini. By combining Arbikie AK’S Gin, sea herbs vermouth, smoked liquid and lemon zest they have created a unique twist on the classic Martini.

Here is the recipe which was prepared by Arbikie Gin’s representative Francesco from the Gibson Bar in London on the night.
