It was fun times at MONIN India recently! As the official beverage partners along with San Pellegrino, of Indian Sommelier Championship 2017, our masters of mixology, BIMs Vaibhav, Akshay, Prashant, Sharad and Sahil coached the participants on the finer details of mixology in Mumbai and Delhi respectively! Once again, the MONIN flavours highlighted the versatility and dependability that we bring to drinks and drink-makers all over the world.
San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna was the official water sponsor of the event. Fine food and wine must go only with the finest waters. Each table received an assortment of San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna waters.
Acqua Panna, which is soft, balanced and light, is perfectly matched with simple wines that have a light and smooth tone such as fresh, fruity white and sparkling wines. S.Pellegrino, which is full of freshness, salinity and fragrance, is well suited to fragrant wines with a stronger structure, such as full-bodied mature red and white wines.
The sessions were as equally a success for us, as for the participants for we witnessed some of the finest sommeliers in the country, battling it out for the top honours!
Eventually, Abhas Saxena form The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, Ashuli Saini of JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar and Delhi Boy Ravi Batra of Pa Pa Ya, Select City Walk grabbed the coveted top three spots! Our heartiest congratulations to the three, and all the participants, and our thanks, for taking us along for this amazing ride.
