Now that the fourth Lisbon Bar Show is over, here’s a s...

Let’s begin with the Schweppes room, which stood out for its elegance and exclusivity. It was purposely one of the hardest rooms to find and entry was allowed for limited groups only. Once inside, they would find a projected interactive video, and cocktails at the end to show off the whole Schweppes range, making a visit entirely worthwhile. Schweppes took advantage of their appearance at the Lisbon Bar Show to present two new products available this summer. A new tonic with a touch of lime, which brings extra freshness, and the mixer Schweppes Matcha which adds a touch of tea tannin to a slightly carbonated drink.
Then there was the Elyx room, where Pernod “hid” the jewels of their crown. In a room entirely inspired by Swedish vodka, with decoration that deserved extra attention and music that invited you to try a cocktail, we found all the Gins in the Beefeater, Plymouth, Seagram’s and Moneky 47 ranges, this last one for the first time in the portfolio.
At the Puerto da Indias stand, which was decorated with various of the Spanish company’s bottles acting as lamps, the new recipe Puerto de Indias Classic was available. We’ll give you more details on that very soon.
Another must-see was the Prime Bar where their whole portfolio was on show, but the spotlight was on the newly arrived Genebra Bols and, of course, on the Hendrick’s, with new creations developed exclusively for the contest.
Well known in Portugal, William Chase brought a beautiful stand where the “very British” sofa was always full and the camera flashes never stopped. It was the ideal spot to taste the brand’s portfolio served by guest bar staff.
Another Genebra worth a visit was By The Dutch, brought by Wine Time, a serious case of smooth. The Dutch company also used their space to present their new Gin, dry and lightly herbal, very much in the old tradition of the Low Countries.
Gin Maré, the Mediterranean Gin par excellence, found a sunny spot on the patio on the first floor for their stand. At the Cocktail Market by Global Premium Brands, filled with fresh fruits on the counters, a team of bar staff, and some guests, this Spanish Gin was served either with a simple tonic or as a cocktail.
From Italy, the country that gave the theme to this year’s Lisbon Bar Show, came the tonics by J. Gasco. The big novelty was their new tonic with only 13,5 Kcal and a gentle touch of juniper.
Finally, a well-deserved mention for all the Portuguese Gins that made their presence felt. Yet again, the record for the number of exhibitors was beaten, with almost 20 of them. Returning brands, Friday, Wild Snow Dog and Gold Grail, were joined by some newbies such as Amicis, Bica and Real Gin, among many others.
If you didn’t make it to the show, we’re sure that by now you’ll want to get here for next year. Till then!

Schweppes – what’s new and what’s not

Schweppes took the opportunity of exhibiting at Lisbon Bar show to show their refreshed mixers range. The premium portfolio is now organized by the botanical or principal flavouring and by the country that inspired it in a total of 6 products, 2 of which are tonic waters.
Their latest model comes from Japan and is called Matcha, the powdered green tea that gives everything its aroma and bright green colour that is so characteristic of the tea. For now, we can tell you just that it is not a tonic water as it has no quinine in the list of ingredients. A complete review of this product will be with you soon.
From Jamaica and Thailand come, respectively, Ginger Ale and Ginger Beer, mixers that had already joined their premium range last year. The novelty is in the neck of the bottles which after being restyled show off the stand out botanical of each mixer. Now appear Ginger Ale and intense ginger that reinforces its fresh, lively character and Ginger Beer and Chilli to wake up the more distracted with a piquant edge.
From Hawaii comes the Hibiscus which was already in the premium portfolio. With a strong pink colour and a floral hint it can be surprisingly versatile as it can be used as a mixer and as a standalone drink.
The first tonic water in this range comes to us from Brazil with the aromatic touch of Pink Pepper. This tonic that we already knew stays in the portfolio of the premium mixes and promises to delight those who want a little extra bite to their tonic.
To the contrary of the Pink Pepper, the Ginger and Cardamom has left the premium range. For the lovers of this tonic that crossed the fresh heat of ginger with the exotic spiciness of cardamom, get to the supermarket fast!
Jacob Schweppe, the “father” of Schweppes, was born in Germany in the middle of the 18th century. It is to him that we owe a debt for one of the biggest inventions of that century, tonic water, which since then has always been connected to India. It is that connection that Schweppes make in the redesign of the bottle of Schweppes Original Premium. While the recipe remains the same, and it is important to point this out, the brand distinguishes the hint of lime that characterizes the Schweppes tonic water. This is a neutral tonic although lightly flavoured, like all existing tonics on the market, and not a deliberately flavoured tonic, such as the case of Schweppes Pink Pepper.
