II GIN FESTIVAL de SITGES 1 de Junio 2012 Presentación Profesional de las mejores “Ginebras” del mundo. Catas, presentaciones, novedades, Master Class, etc. Presentación al evento mediante INVITACIÓN.
<h1> 2011 EVENT INFO</h1>
“In Sitges, with reference to the landmark Church of the landscape, the other end of the promenade, the Hotel Terramar Yuca Club the other day I was made Gin Festival of Sitges, and so is known, the first in Spain. ” (Thus begins his chronicle Yulino Davila’s friend, sometime collaborator on this blog, which now give the floor to tell us your experience there, having been privileged spectator, and surely coprotagonisa of this event. Let us hear him:

“Escorted by very good gin tasters, Lupe Guerrero and Martin M. Guerra attended the call of the pleasures that the president of the ACTH (Agrupació Treballadorsd’Hosteleria District of Garraf), and one of the organizers of the festival, Ruben Ubric, was kind enough to invite us to participate. The terrace of the Hotel Terramar Yuca Club was the setting for this event unique and first of its way to present the promotional products. You could not wish for more, good weather, beaches and fantastic music by the lapping waves against a bare terrace with a lounge with a generous bar and enough space to move between the exhibitors and the excellence of the best gins.

The I Gin Festival, was right to split into two parts. The first part of 6 to 8 pm, was directed to the professional world, and as usual in this kind of event was attended by leading industry professionals, teachers distillers, distillery owners and prestigious bartenders who did their role of providing the most varied of information about their products. Each wore palm with its own flagship, and of course, complicated by the choice of such a variety and different forms of development, different botanical components, different preparations and techniques.

The second part of 8 to 10 pm, would be devoted, as a great innovation, the sector of the consuming public, the people who make the product flow in the market. Good hook and blow, as it is they who assume, with their preferences, which are imposed on products that range is now becoming known, and this, it was time to be given the importance deserves (and they should read this brief review). This high accuracy is necessary to emphasize, since it is not for use in this type of event. It was not what people commonly expected, such as a “tasting” and their respective comments. This time, the products were available in the respective open bar that exhibitors had set for the public.

Apart from the excellent service, the consumer was active with direct questioning the bartender on duty. So this way, the non-professional, learned of small but important secrets hidden gin and some of the details that the bartender becomes effective, in the order and presentation of the various combined gin which has accessible. This second part, had its hoot added, and was happy that all staff who moved naturally and even familiarity. A party whose protagonist, gin, served in style. [Ciktadelle Reserva 2008]

At the entrance of I Gin Festival of Sitges, a stylish hostess enforced the protocol governing on these occasions. But I was fortunate to be guided by a host of luxury, Laura Molina P, which was part of the event, and its beauty and charm his way among us people who crowded the room, that on the one hand, and the other was finding with my friend Albert Montserrat, whose know-how, knowledge and professionalism as an expert barman advised us it is, and introduced us to their colleagues who couldnt do enough to make things right.

Gins were 22 brands of those taking part in this Festival, accompanied by 6 brands of tonic water. There were many proposals for the organization, but ultimately, due to time and the overflow of the event, only 5 bartenders of the many who were eligible participated in the demonstration, Francesc Breteau (Slow Bar), Alberto Pizarro, Javier Caballero Javier Reynoso (Diageo) and Mike (nineteenth Bar).

The professional public, restaurant, bars and other hospitality-related businesses, all with prevailing present desire to enter into this event, and the general public was fairly presented to the explanations and tips from the pros.

Among the many brands and varieties of gin, I will begin by highlighting the increase in the supply of high quality gin, called ‘Premium’, made with more ingredients and distillation methods (typically using copper stills). Within this range ‘high’ must point to the French Citadelle Gin Reserve, one of the best for taste “pure”, ie without tonic, its quality is outstanding and superb in taste. Citadelle Reserve drag the name from 1775, the distillery Citadel of Dunkirk, and is the first to hold the title of Royal Distillery and the oldest in France. For now, Citadelle Reserve is only available in Spain, USA and Japan.

Today, since 1989 the Pierre Ferrand Cognac Distillery is responsible for methods to get a couple of centuries, a purely artisanal gin, where they exist. It is a distilled gin stills Charantais with direct fire (the same ones used for prestigious cognac) and aged for 6 months or so barrels of cognac in the house. Its careful balance that is structured with citrus notes, floral and exotic, will round out the coolness of juniper. A goldsmith work to harmonize flavors and tastes perfectly. Product is a limited edition, numbered and certified. Getting older vintage gin cask of brandy, makes a difference as new and unique project. All this is endorsed by the terms received:
Double gold medal WorldSpiritsAwards (Autriche 2010), “Highly Recommended” Rating SpiritJournal (USA, 2008), 90-95 points, WineEnthusiast (USA, 2009), 94 points, ThePatterson’sTasting Panel (USA, 2008), 92 points Sibaritas Penin Guide (Spain, 2009), etc.. ”

To not get tired with so much data, tomorrow at the same time, we continued the chronicle of our friend Yulino. Meanwhile, how about a glass of gin, right? Although today is July 4th .
