London put in an incredible showing at this year's Spirited Awards in New Orleans - the many winners were honoured at an event last night in Shoreditch.
Held at Callooh Callay (World's Best Cocktail Menu), the event was put together by both Dan Priseman and Spirit Cartel - the latter's Banks 5 Island took the Best New Product award last year.
Priseman was behind the bar with an original list of four drinks, including a twist on the Vieux Carré, the Vieux Callay.
Alex Kratena was in attendance with both of his awards, for International Bartender of the Year and World's Best Hotel Bar (Artesian Bar at The Langham), alongside representatives of The Connaught Bar (World's Best Cocktail Bar), Salvatore at Playboy (World's Best Drinks Selection) and The Zetter Townhouse (World's Best New Cocktail Bar).
