Hipsters were treated to the hospitality industry’s answer to Takeshi’s Castle over the weekend when 300 bartenders and brand ambassadors battled it out in east London for the chance to win a trip to Greece.

WG&S’ Highland Festival, which took place at Haggerston Park on Sunday (11 August), saw bartenders competing in a series of challenges including an obstacle course and ‘tug of war’ finale.

Team Hendrick’s Gin, led by Brand Ambassador Sasha Filimonov, was crowned this year’s champions and included bartenders from Lyaness, Fitz’s Bar, Happiness Forgets and Bar Swift. The team have won an all-expenses paid trip to the Athens Bar Show in November.
