KILPATRICK FINE STRAINER TO GET NEW COLOURS

April 7,2021

New York bar accessory company Poor Man’s Kitchen is preparing to release three new colourways for its Kilpatrick Fine Strainer.

Originally available in stainless steel, the new colours add matte black, copper and gold to the range.

The design has been improved to allow for faster straining. Unnecessary metal has been eliminated, which has subsequently increased the surface area that liquid flows through. Additionally, the springs have also been tightened.

Pre-orders are now live for the newest model of the Kilpatrick Fine Strainer, with shipping to commence in the fall. Bulk discounts are also built into any order of 4+ strainers.

ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE ART OF ITALICUS APERITIVO CHALLENGE 2023

January 10,2023

If you think the original cocktails you create are works of art, then it’s time to tell Italicus all about it.

Italicus has announced the launch of its Art of Italicus Aperitivo Challenge 2023. The winner will be awarded a once-in-a-lifetime mentorship program with Giacomo Giannotti at Paradiso Barcelona, World’s Best Bar 2022

Designed as a bartending challenge inspired by art and creativity, Italicus tasks entrants with crafting the ultimate aperitivo experience using Italicus as a key ingredient. Believing that bartenders are artists, the brand challenges bartenders to be as innovative as possible with their creations while remaining true to the aperitivo occasion.

With any form of art as inspiration, bartenders must create an original aperitivo-style cocktail recipe using a minimum of 1.5 oz of Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto. Bartenders will also be required to include a sustainable element in their cocktails, highlighted in either an ingredient or garnish. The recipe should be expressed with measurements as well as garnishes, glassware and overall presentation.

Just eight finalists will be selected for the US final, which will be held in spring 2023. The finalists will prepare their cocktails in front of a live panel of expert judges, and the winner will be crowned as the US Bar Artist of the Year. This winner, along with the national winners from all participating countries, will receive a 1-year membership to the Shōshin Art Club learning platform and will be entered into the Global Art of ITALICUS Final, which will take place in May 2023.

“The Art Of Italicus Aperitivo Challenge is a program that gives me great pride and allows me to discover and meet, year after year, the new emerging talent in our industry,” said Giuseppe Gallo, founder and CEO of Italicus. “The contest is considered a creative platform for bartenders to express their creative sensibility, while staying connected to the Aperitivo cocktail culture.

Last year the brand had over 1,200 entries worldwide. “I look forward to continuing to innovate and support our bartending community and working together on a future more sustainable for the generations to come,’ continued Gallo

From January 9 – March 6, 2023, entries for the competition will be accepted at https://rosolioitalicus.com/the-art-of-italicus/aperitivo-challenge/ in the US, the UK, Italy, France, Spain, Croatia and the Slovenia region, Greece, Hungary, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. All other bartenders outside of these countries will be able to apply through a Wild Card entry and will be given the opportunity to win a spot in the global final.

All participants are also invited to share the recipe via social media using the appropriate hashtags #italicus #rosoliodibergamotto #artofitalicus #AOI23.

January 10,2023

50 Best, the organisation behind The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and The World’s 50 Best Bars, has announced its first global launch since 2009: The World’s 50 Best Hotels.

With the travel industry geared up for its biggest year since 2019, 50 Best is launching a brand-new awards programme celebrating the hotel industry.

Highlighting outstanding hotel experiences worldwide, it is hoped that the hotelier list will do what the restaurant and bar lists have done, and shape the aspirations of millions of consumers, travellers and hoteliers.

Marking 50 Best’s first official foray into travel, the launch of The World’s 50 Best Hotels is another step in 50 Best’s journey towards becoming the ultimate global reference point for the best hospitality experiences across the world, encompassing restaurants, bars and now hotels.

“Over the past 20 years, we have become the international market leader in providing the most reliable lists of expert-curated restaurants and bars on the planet,” explained Tim Brooke-Webb, Managing Director of 50 Best. “To us, it seems like a natural fit to complete the circle, uniting restaurants, bars and hotels.

Brooke-Webb explains that it is a perfect time to spotlight hotels as the travel industry rebuilds after the pandemic.

“Our aim with these awards is to define, lead and amplify the conversation on the future of hospitality,” he continued. “We want to create a unifying platform for the world’s best hotels and the amazing individuals behind them but also travel-loving consumers, helping them to choose the very best places to stay.”

The first-ever list of The World’s 50 Best Hotels will be revealed in a live countdown, alongside a series of special awards, culminating in the announcement of The World’s Best Hotel 2023.

The ranking will reflect the best travel experiences collated from 580 anonymous voters – a balanced mix of hoteliers, travel journalists, educators and experienced international travellers – headed by a group of industry-leading Academy Chairs across nine regions globally.

Any hotel worldwide is eligible for votes, and it does not have to fit any criteria or tick any pre-ordained boxes to be considered. Voters are asked for their seven best hotel experiences across the two-year polling period.
