World Bartender Day

It’s World Bartender Day, and we’re celebrating across the globe, enjoying internationally inspired cocktails created by our talented bartenders. It’s been a tricky year, especially in the hospitality industry, so we want to celebrate the amazing bartenders out there and thank them for their glorious cocktail creations.

We’re raising a toast to our fellow bartenders and look forward to all sharing a drink together again soon!

To mark World Bartender Day, some of our favourite bartenders have created some superb Hayman’s cocktails. Whilst you can’t go on holiday at the moment, enjoy bringing an international touch to your evening wind down, with these delicious cocktails.
