Emil Åreng is the Bar Manager at the Open/Closed Bar in Umeå, Sweden.
Åreng represented Sweden at the World Class Bartender of the Year final, in 2013. Now he’s set his sights on the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition, in Sydney on May 1-3. We were very impressed with his submission and wanted to share it. We are hoping that he will be in Sydney, along with our friend Xaris Darras, of Athens.
The Pepin Cocktail is Emil Åreng’s fantastic submission into the Bacardi Legacy 2015 competition.
In his own words, “The cocktail is all about Pepin Bosch, the legendary president for Bacardi, that had to work in silence. Now is time to tell the world what he did, all revealed in this cocktail.”
“To show how easy this cocktail is to make, we travelled to Kristineberg, about 150 km from Umeå. It is one of the deepest active mines in Sweden. We wanted to show that if can you do this cocktail in a bloody mine, you can do it anywhere in the world.”
“I will reveal the full story at the Nordic Bacardi Legacy Finals in Copenhagen the 27th of January.”
