NINE ELMS No.18 No & Low Alcohol Christmas Cocktail Competition


Win dinner for 2 at The Clove Club!

NINE ELMS No.18 No & Low Alcohol Christmas Cocktail Competition

Intricately Crafted, Intriguingly Complex, Pleasingly Balanced.

NINE ELMS No.18 has complexity, great acidity, mouth-watering tannins and a good long finish – but most importantly, it’s delicious! Created in London and produced using an innovative combination of traditional & contemporary techniques, NINE ELMS No.18 was crafted to complement good food. But it also shines in a cocktail!

That’s why we’re giving London’s best bartenders the chance to showcase their creativity by developing a unique No or Low alcohol Christmas Cocktail featuring NINE ELMS No.18.

First Prize is dinner for 2 at The Clove Club, this year’s highest ranking UK restaurant in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. The prize will comprise a 9 course tasting menu and the famous non-alcoholic pairing created by innovative bar manager Rob Simpson. The Clove Club was the first London restaurant to feature dedicated non-alcoholic and tea pairing menus.

A complementary bottle of NINE ELMS No.18 will be delivered to all entrants for recipe development on application. A shortlist of 6 finalists will be invited to reproduce their creations for the judges’ final verdict at Trade Soho on Wednesday 9th October at 11am. This will be followed by lunch for all participants and the judges.
