The second edition of Bols Business class UK took place at the charming Watershed venue in Bristol. Over forty bar professionals gathered for the event which hosted talks by four influential speakers from UK’s leading bar industry. During the break, the attending guests sampled cutting edge cocktails in two different pop up areas at the venue. The official launch of Galliano l’Aperitivo took place in one of the pop up areas and was hosted by Ago Perrone and Giorgio Bargiani from the Connaught bar in London, who was recently awarded ‘world’s best cocktail bar’ and ‘world’s best hotel bar’ at the Spirited Awards at Tales of the cocktails in New Orleans.  

After the event at the Watershed, the attended guests were invited to discover Bristol’s finest cocktail bars during a bar tour where five of Bristol’s top bars presented their Business class special menu for the evening.
