Peter F. Heering Sling Award Competition 2014 on mixology.eu

Der dänische Kirschlikör Heering schreibt zum vierten Mal den Peter F. Heering Sling Award aus. Der Austragungsort des Finales ist wie im Vorjahr der Bar Convent Berlin am 7. Oktober 2014.

Der im Jahr 2011 mit MIXOLOGY als Medienpartner ins Leben gerufene Sling Award zeigt sich erneut global und bittet zur internationalen Teilnahme. Voraussetzung für die ist das Entwerfen eines Cocktails, inspiriert durch den klassischen Singapore Sling. Wie üblich bei Cocktail-Wettbewerben, darf die Basiszutat des Ausrichters nicht fehlen, in diesem Falle Cherry Heering. Selbst hergestellter Sirup oder Infusionen sind nicht erlaubt. Das Bild und die Informationen zum Drink können bis zum Teilnahmeschluss, den 25. Mai 2014, über Facebook oder die Internetseite von Heering hochgeladen werden. Aus den eingegangenen Rezepturen der Bewerber wird pro Land ein nationaler Vertreter ausgewählt, was den internationalen Charakter des Wettbewerbes unterstreicht.

Über London nach Berlin

Dieser ist in vier Finalrunden unterteilt: der Bewerbung, dem Viertelfinale, dem Halbfinale in London und dem Finale auf dem Bar Convent Berlin. Das Viertelfinale besteht aus den nationalen Gewinnern und ihren Rezepten, die über die Facebook-Seite präsentiert werden. Aus diesen Gewinnern werden 15 Halbfinalisten ausgewählt, die wie im Vorjahr mit dem Einzug ins Halbfinale einen Tablet Computer erhalten. Für den letzten Schritt in das Finale entwerfen die Halbfinalisten ein maximal drei Minuten langes Video, dessen Konzept und Vorgabe auf dem Tablet bereitgestellt ist. Auf dem Halbfinale in London Mitte August werden die fünf Finalteilnehmer bekannt gegeben, die auf dem Bar Convent Berlin am 7. Oktober 2014 ihrer Kreationen vor einer internationalen Jury präsentieren werden. Dem Gewinner winken 500 Euro und ein silberner Stelton Shaker aus Dänemark.

The 2013 Peter F. Heering Sling Competition and Finale in Berlin

The long and illustrious history of the Singapore Sling is as nuanced and vibrant as the drink itself. It is the perfect combination of ingredients to play homage to the intrepid cocktail creators and drinkers of yore, while spanning the globe in a single glass.

A proper sling combines a formidable amount of well-measured spirits from Sweden, England and France, and the exotic fruit juices of South East Asia—where those Swedes and Brits and other ex-pats, were discovering the pleasures of creative imbibing.

While the “classic” is a type of perfection to be counted on, like any global traveler with a wealth of perspective, there is always room for some experimentation and evolution.

With this in mind, fast forward to Berlin 2013, where the forefront of everything cool is exuberantly sharpening its edge. It was here, last week during Bar Convent Berlin, one of the world’s largest convergences of liquor and spirits, that this age-old cocktail rose its head above the din of clinking glasses, looking as fresh and vibrant as the coolest, young Berlin hipster to have ever hit the scene.

This was thanks to Cherry Heering (one of the essential ingredients of the classic sling), and its wildly fun recipe for re-invention: the Peter F. Heering 2013 Heering Sling Competition

Bar Convent Berlin – One of The Best Bar Shows in The World on DrinkUpNy.com

With Tales of the Cocktail, Manhattan Cocktail Classic, SF, PDX, LAX, BOS, and AZ cocktail weeks, you’d think that Americans would hold the crown for the best bar show in the world. In truth, while many of these US-based events are fantastic, it’s actually the Berlin Bar Show (or Bar Convent Berlin) that manages to come out on top.
Now in its fifth year, the BCB manages a perfect balance of trade show, conference, and bartender gathering. The core of Bar Convent Berlin is the spirited trade show with two full floors of spirit vendors and companies sampling their wares and making cocktails for conference attendees. One of the things that makes the BCB so enjoyable is that many of the spirit companies set up mini bars for attendees to sit and linger. This gives the show a much more relaxed feel to it and people actually stop, sit, and enjoy their cocktails.

BCB was also an opportunity for brands to show off the winners of their cocktail competitions.
…Cherry Heering flew out Seattle bartender Philip Thompson from The Coterie to make his award-winning Singapore Sling Variation, Sling & Fizzle.
