Havana News - Waiting for the GP

On Havana Cocteles, last week was all about lifting the veil on what competitors can be expecting at the 2014 Havana Club Grand Prix.

First, we had a chat with Grand Prix coordinator Anistatia Miller.

Cocktail competitions have to evolve to stay relevant so it’s not going to surprise you to learn that the 2014 Havana Club Grand Prix will be very different from the previous edition. In fact, the only things that remain are our rums, the cantineros and the beautiful city of Havana. But what exactly can you expect next June at the Grand Prix? Well, we went to the only reliable source: 2014 Havana Club Grand Prix coordinators Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown, extraordinaire cocktail detectives and friends of the cantineros. Anistatia was kind enough to tell us all about it. And she immediately let us know where we stand: “This year’s Grand Prix is a radical departure”.

We also had a look at the first two days of the Cuban week: training sessions and more training sessions.

Now that you know (almost) everything you need to know about the competition at the 2014 Havana Club Grand Prix, it’s time for us to lift the veil on the very exciting experts-led sessions that await guests and competitors on the first two days of a fact- and fun-packed week in Cuba.

The first day will be dedicated to “Cuban life, Cuban culture”. After all, you don’t mix drinks in a vacuum so discovering what the country and the city is all about will only help competitors on their way to create a new classic Cuban cocktail.
