WINNER OF PETER F HEERING SLING AWARD 2015 IS….

To celebrate SINGAPORE SLING’S 100TH ANNIVERSARY in 2015, Peter F. Heering invited bartenders from all over the world to create exciting versions of the legendary Singapore Sling.

“It’s a real honour to be part of such a prestigious competition. All the bartenders are incredibly talented and we had a hard time picking the five best Sling menus. I’m looking forward to see what these future cocktail gurus will accomplish.” – DAVID WONDRICH, Drinks Historian.

To compete in the 2015 Sling Award, each bartender presented a Sling menu consisting of three different Slings. There can only be one winner of the 2015 Sling Award, but the jury has selected 5 lucky bartenders to join us to Singapore and the legendary Raffles Hotel where the Singapore Sling was once born. These five bartenders will join us to Singapore and the legendary Raffles Hotel in November to show us their interpretations of the iconic Singapore Sling. The fabulous five will also have their Sling menus immortalized in the legendary Difford’s Guide.
