Sling Jury Named on

The global finals jury for the 2014 Peter F. Heering Sling Award has been announced. Global jury members range from an iconic cocktail historian to a James Beard Award winning Author. This notable group will gather at the Bar Convent in Berlin, Germany (Oct 7th- 8th, 2014) for the Global Finals to oversee and judge at a tasting bash, which will take place at the cool and regal Ritz Carlton (Berlin) at their famed Fragrance Bar. The Sling inspired soiree will be MC’d by Philip Duff, one of the cocktail world’s best-loved presenters and cocktail experts.

“Having traveled the world tasting the best of the best in food and wine, I look forward enormously to sampling brilliant cocktails in Berlin from the iconic Cherry Heering brand—and judging the international mixologists who made them,” said James Beard Award winning Author, David Rosengarten. “I have always been one for adventure…and being able to taste what some of the best bartenders in the world have done with the Singapore Sling is as exciting to me as any gastronomic adventure!”
