Angostura brought the Carnival spirit to London when it held the European finals of the International Angostura Cocktail Challenge at UK RumFest 2010. German mixologist Wolfgang Mayer took the European crown, and will be in the grand finale scheduled to take place during T&T Carnival in March next year. According to Angostura’s senior marketing manager, Brian Woods, “RumFest is now an integral part of the drinks calendar in Europe, and while it is held in London, it is a truly international event. “The interest from the visitors to the event in our cocktail challenge made it a memorable experience for all our competitors.

As European winner, Mayer will now face winners from North America, South America, the Caribbean, Asia, Australia, Africa, T&T and India. The overall winner of the global competition will walk away with a cash prize of US$10,000, and a year-long contract as the global Angostura brand ambassador.
