Adrian’s cocktail is a reel win­ner


An Aberdeen bar­man has won the first leg of a cocktail com­pe­ti­tion.

Orchid bar man­ager Adrian Beggs won the Ed­in­burgh heat of the Shet­land Reel dis­tillery com­pe­ti­tion.

Com­peti­tors cre­ated their own unique drinks with gin as the key com­po­nent.

Judge Stu­art Nick­er­son said that Mr Beggs’ drink was a “unan­i­mous choice of the three judges to go for­ward.

“He man­aged to cap­ture all the el­e­ments of the com­pe­ti­tion that we were look­ing for and links to Shet­land.”

Mr Beggs’ cocktail, called Hal­lowed Call­ing, in­cor­po­rated cor­dial, tea and Shet­land Reel Orig­i­nal Gin.

The fi­nal of the com­pe­ti­tion will take place in Lon­don in May.
