Somms snatch second victory

Drinks: Drinks

The first day of Imbibe Live 2012, at Kensington Olympia was packed with highlights (the team from Artesian releasing confetti cannons and Jake Burger dressed as a Beefeater, for example), not least the final of Imbibe’s fourth annual Bartenders v Sommeliers competition.

Already 11 points up after the first heat, the sommeliers’ victory came as no great shock, however (in spite of the competition’s first ever champagne cascade collapse) the bartenders did give them a definite run for their money when it came to the final challenges.

Full details of how the competiton played out will be revealed in the next edition of Imbibe, including how one very hairy member of Team Bartender lost his beard.
