Glenfiddich, the world-recognised single malt Scotch whisky, recently hosted the second edition of the global marquee initiative, the World’s Most Experimental Bartender in Mumbai. The event was held in association with GQ India.
World Most Experimental Bartender endeavours to bring together creative minds who collaborate and develop an interesting interpretation of various Glenfiddich expressions. The collaborators – artists, chefs, sculptors, musicians from across India, work with mixologists and bartenders to incorporate their own inspirations of concoctions by way of presentation or flavours. This idea is then presented before a panel of judges comprising of renowned restauranteur – Zorawar Kalra, Marketing Head of William Grant & Sons - Shweta Jain and GQ’s Lifestyle Editor – Megha Shah, for the evaluation.
Through this collaboration between bartenders and mavericks, Glenfiddich establishes itself as a platform for creative expressions. The global search aims to recognise and reward individuals who collaborate with artists outside of the traditional drinks world in order to create a more experimental drinking experience.
The duo of Chef Prateek Sandhu, Masque & Grappa Bartender, Chirag Pal were named the India winner from the seven collaborating participants from across India. The duo took inspiration from the Mighty Himalayas, calling it "Prionsaí de Sléibhe" - Gaelic for Princess of Mountains. They used ingredients which are found in the Himalayas such as sea buckthorn wild berry, apricot and rosemary with the expertly crafted Glenfiddich 15 which is matured in American oak and sherry butt. 

Some of the renowned collaborators who came on board for this competition were:
Maria Goretti: Food Developer 
Matt Chittaranjan, Blue Tokia: Barista
Yohan Marshal, Yohan Marshall & The Mischief: Musician/ Drumer
Prateek Sandhu, Masque: Chef
Manan Gandhi, Bombay Perfumery: Perfumer
Ishan Puri, White Rhino: Beer Brewer
Tejasvi Chandela, All Things: Chocolatier 
Pablo Naranjo Agular, LE 15: Chef

The winner will be awarded with the title of ‘The World’s Most Experimental Bartender’ and Glenfiddich will, thereafter work with the winning duo throughout 2017 to showcase their creativity globally and bring it to life for on-trade.
