The 2014 Peter F. Heering Sling Award Global Winner Announced
The prestigious global jury members and the equally as important and “Peoples Vote” slung into action inspired by the Slingsipped, enjoyed and ultimately decided on the 2014 Peter F. Heering Sling Award global winner. Nick Kobbernagel Hovind, Denmark, “The Sloe Sling” has been announced as the winning Sling – and arguably that this Sling is now “The Sling Heard Around the World!”
The Ritz Carlton, Berlin held court for the five global finalist who hailed from Canada, Singapore, The United States, Denmark and Estonia and each Sling was tasted, discussed, tasted again and well thought over until the sling inspired libation tally was complete from the global jury.
Apart from the honor and media exposure, Nick Kobbernagel Hovind, Denmark, also received € 500 and a stunning silver Stelton shaker from Denmark The 2014 Peter F. Heering Sling Award, which has grown from 27 participating countries last year to now 44 participating Sling inspired countries, has elevated the competition to one of the world’s greatest and largest cocktail competitions.
“The creativity that these bartenders put into their Sling cocktail creations, has raised the standard for what a Sling can be and how truly fashionable the Cherry Heering brand is and always will be” said Adéle Robberstad, CEO, Peter F. Heering “The global participation was flattering considering the volume of cocktail competitions around the world, though we look at the Sling Awards as more than just a competition, we see it as an opportunity to honor one of the most classic cocktails of all-time with a Cherry Heering on top!”
