Singapore’s Tippling Club has been nominated across three categories in the 2017 Tales of the Cocktail’s Spirited Awards. Tippling Club is a finalist for World’s Best Cocktail Menu; International Bartender of the Year; and Best International Restaurant Bar.
The finalists are selected from over a thousand nominations by committees made up of the industry’s most respected professionals, and led by the Spirits Award’s chairperson Charlotte Voisey.
Tippling Club’s Sensorium Menu, which is designed to create an olfactory drinking experience delivered via 12 unique scents is making its debut on the World’s Best Cocktail Menu category, joining other esteemed venues including London’s The Savoy and New York’s Dead Rabbit.
The aroma-forward menu was launched in September 2016 by head bartender Joe Scholfield and chef-owner Ryan Clift, and paved the way for Schofield to receive a nomination in the International Bartender of the Year top 10 category.
“The Sensorium Menu started as a simple idea a year ago, and has since evolved into a full-fledged cocktail programme that is truly one-of-a-kind. Being recognised by Tales of the Cocktail is an incredible affirmation of the hard work and dedication that the team have tirelessly invested in championing our craft. I am honoured to be able to lead them in flying the Tippling flag far and wide,” said Schofield, who joined Tippling Club in early 2016.
The three Spirited Awards nominations are the latest additions to Tippling Club’s accolades, recently receiving four top billings in The Bar Awards Singapore for Best Restaurant Bar, Most Creative Cocktail Bar, Best Cocktail Bar and Bartender of the Year, in addition to being named in Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2017.
Other Singapore based Spirit Awards finalists include ATLAS (World’s Best Spirits Selection, Best New International Cocktail Bar), Manhattan Bar at The Regent (Best International Hotel Bar), Steve Schneider of Employees Only (International Bartender of the Year) and Zdenek Kastanek (Best Bar Mentor) are all in the running.
The top four Spirited Awards nominees for each category will be announced on Saturday, June 17 via an exclusive Tales of the Cocktail Facebook Live broadcast. And of course, winners will be awarded at Tales of the Cocktails at the Spirited Awards ceremony in New Orleans on Saturday, July 22.
