William Grant & Sons has announced its Highland Festival will return to London’s Haggerston Park on Sunday 3 July following a two-year hiatus.

The drinks industry event returns for its sixth edition and is set to see the group’s UK brand ambassadors and their chosen team of seven bartenders battle it out in a series of challenges including the Ramos Fizz Relay, Beach Volleyball, and Tug of War.

The event will be co-hosted by Sarah Berardi UK brand ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin and Fabiano Latham, former Reyka Vodka UK brand ambassador.

“I think I can speak for the full brand ambassador team and the UK trade when I say I am freaking out with excitement that Highland Festival is finally being able to happen again,” said Berardi.

“Nothing brings the bartending community together more than a measure of in-person, head-to-head, healthy competition. No doubt after the last few years we’ve had, this will be epic.”
