London set to stage the flavoursome festival designed to promote Brazilian cocktails, gastronomy and culture in the UK
VBRATA UK (Visit Brazil Travel & Cultural Association) has announced the first edition of the London Caipirinha Festival in partnership with the Embassy of Brazil in London. The festival will run from 5 – 17 September 2017 in participating London-based bars and restaurants.
The London Caipirinha Festival – the largest Brazilian cocktail and gastronomy competition of its type in the UK—also aims to promote cachaça, the distilled spirit used to make a caipirinha, as well as a range of participating bars and restaurants across London.
The London Caipirinha Festival 2017 summons cocktail lovers across the capital to cast their votes on a number of categories, including Caipirinha (original with lime, fruits and exotic), Caipirinha menu, Bartender, Bar deco, Brazilian food served, Cuisines fusion offered, Establishment location and Establishment services. Votes can be registered online on the festival website. Members of the public who cast their vote will also have the opportunity to win one of several exclusive prizes. A panel of experts will also judge the caipirinha entries.
“We are very excited to be launching the first edition of the annual London Caipirinha Festival. It is the first event of its kind and provides a unique platform to introduce the infectious Brazilian party spirit to the British public,” says Chris Fuzinatto, Chairman of VBRATA EUROPE and creator of the London Caipirinha Festival.
The festival comes at a time when public interest in Brazil is in the ascendency following a series of cultural events and programmes designed to celebrate Brazilian culture in London.
