Winners Schweppes
Signature Selection 2017

These three fine gentlemen have been selected as the winning bartenders of the Signature Programme 2017. They each presented their surprising and delicious Signature Drink during a shoot on Ibiza. The drinks and the winners are immortalized in the new campaign for Schweppes Premium Mixers 2018.

The Schweppes Signature Programme has been developed to set a new standard when it comes to preparing the perfect mixed drink. During an intensive months-long programme, the company ran a roadshow throughout the participating countries of Poland, Hungary and Sweden.
The mission was to immerse these markets in the world of Schweppes Premium Mixers. By teaching them about the brand, via on-trade skill trainings, and informing and inspiring them about the unique carbonation and flavours. As part of the programme, we also challenged the bartenders to get the best out of themselves and the Premium Mixers.

In other words, we challenged them to create something exquisite-tasting yet surprising. And they did!

Winner Signature Selection Sweden 2017
By combining my drinks with fragrances, I create not only a drink but a whole experience. It’s the combination of sense and taste that makes it sensational. Thai Tonic is a fresh Asian version of a vodka tonic, infused with flavours from Thailand. It captures the intensity of the flavours you experience in Thailand. A fresh & spicy cocktail.

Winner Signature Selection Poland 2017
Creating a fine cocktail is a combination of real passion for mixing, the knowledge of products and ingredients, and challenging myself every day to go for the ultimate drink. The ‘English Summer Rain’ is a memory of a warm Summer tropical island. Easy to drink, easy to make, but remember: enjoy carefully!
