Mortons … Mixologists in the making

I have a guest blogger today, and in that way I can be all over the world at once. The scene is back in London and my blogger is Collette O'Connor, our charming and intelligent sales manager for the UK.

Select Collection of Mayfair supported, along with our valued Travel Partner Banyan Tree a Master Chef style Cocktail Making Competition on the 14th at Mortons, the exclusive Mayfair Private Members Club.

Collette was also one of the judges, here
with Justin Purves, also a judge
Select and Banyan Tree together donated a fantastic prize – a holiday with flights to Banyan Tree Phuket, and also had the honour of choosing the best beverage.  The many  participants had just one shot at creating a bespoke vodka-based mouth-watering exotic drink and only 10 minutes to do it!

The lucky winner is yet to be announced so watch this space...  But a lot of fun was had on the night, and the Members were in highly competitive spirits with their eye on the big prize!

The expert panel - Collette O’Connor Sales Manager Select Collection UK,  Justin Purves Marketing Director for Europe Banyan Tree and Frederic Tartas Bar Manager extraordinaire of Mortons had the very serious task of judging the competition, as it’s not only about the fantastic prize, but the winning cocktail will be available at Mortons and Banyan Tree Phuket during the month of December!

Judging - a serious affair

A big thank you to Alex, Fred and Team Mortons, also Bronwen and Justin of Banyan Tree and our own Contracts Co-ordinator Jennifer Sloan for a hugely successful evening.  And of course a big cheers to the wonderful Mortons Members for competing so enthusiastically!  The judges had a tough job to decide.
