URBAN BRANDY COCKTAIL ROUTE

UBCR -URBAN BRANDY COCKTAIL ROUTE JOHANNESBURG

December 2014 I received an email from Paddington Station PR who are one of my clients based in Cape Town and the email was all about how the The Urban Brandy Cocktail Route is an experienced-based initiative launched in response to the increasing public demand for SA’s favourite spirit in all its guises and how they have now launched some venues in Johannesburg and if I would be interested in becoming an Ambassador / Influencer of the Urban Brandy Cocktail Route, to which I accepted immediately.

The Urban Brandy Cocktail Route was launched in March 2013 in Cape Town and was so well received by all, that it now also runs in Jozi and Durban.

They have 9 venues in Jo’burg (with more in first-class venues in the pipeline) each offering an array of 12 cocktails roughly priced from R48 R58 a pop.

#UBCR Joburg Venues:

  • The Griffin – Ilovo
  • Tokyo Star  – Greenside
  • Circle Bar the Crowne Plaza Hotel – Rosebank
  • Fire & Ice Hotel – Melrose Arch
  • Park Inn – Sandton
  • Radisson Blu Hotel – Sandton
  • The Steamworks – Fourways
  • Harem – Rosebank
  • Kong Urban – Rosebank

So as Ambassador / Influencer  we kicked off our campaign by visiting The Griffin and let me tell you that we’ve seen the inside of The Griffin in Ilovo and know what those walls look like on a good night. Their selection of 8 different cocktails had us beginning at the top and not stopping until we hit the bottom. Brandy is highly mixable and very versatile, therefore the perfect base for cocktails like:

 The next venue on the #UBCR was Tokyo Star Greenside. I had never been there on a Monday night and when I arrived it seemed pretty empty but within 30min of me chatting to the Manager whilst prepping the photo area it started to get busy. The barman were doing what they do best and that’s creating these delicious cocktails. Now this time I didn’t have to taste each one like previously at The Griffin because they are the same so instead I selected 2 of my favourites and began to snap away.

 

The perk about being an Ambassador for the #UBCR is that not only did we get to taste all these cocktails but we also had the opportunity to spend the night at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosebank. It really is an Awesome hotel with luxury rooms, comfortable beds and see through bathroom walls, yes I said see through bathroom walls. We had a cool room with an amazing view over looking the city. We then went down to the Circle Bar and got to taste some more cocktails and then I did what I do best and took some cool pictures.

 

 So people I strongly suggest you make a turn past any one of the above listed #UBCR venues and try out these really delicious tasting cocktails
