Cheeky Blinders put fizz into Shakes and the City competition

22 July 2016

Birmingham produced a winning concoction in Shakes and the City – a competition to determine the UK’s best cocktail city.

The Cheeky Blinders represented Birmingham and came out on top against their counterparts from Leicester and London in the final of the competition at Imbibe Live.

The team – made up of James Bowker from The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Cocktail Lounge, Chris Bellingham of The Kenilworth Hotel and The Bureau’s Samuel Bolton – went to town talking about the city’s many famous creations and characters.

And their winning cocktail incorporated chocolate and custard-flavoured Langley’s No. 8 gin, a curry spice infused wine liqueur and mango lassi tincture.

The result was a very complex Martinez twist that judge Thomas Aske described as a ‘taste sensation’.

It proved to be a closely-fought contest but Birmingham got the judges’ verdict and were crowned champions of Shakes and the City.
