Every year wristband wearers are invited to vote for the ‘Best Cocktail of Birmingham Cocktail Weekend’. The winner of the public vote receives a much coveted trophy, and some major bragging rights.

Three front runners emerged early on in the voting this year but it was Bar Ikigai that took the crown with their signature cocktail ‘Koshu’!  This isn’t the first award Bar Ikigai have won recently either…They also scooped the title of ‘Newcomer of the Year’ in the Top 50 Cocktail Bar Awards 2022.

The winning serve was comprised of:


– Haku Vodka
– Bell Pepper Cordial
– Green Chilli Liqueur
– Pear Brandy
– Salt

Garnished with a drop of chilli oil

Now, as our cocktail lovers know, BCW signature cocktails are exclusively available during the festival and exclusively for wristband wearers. But this year we’re going to try something new! Just one signature drink is going to be made available outside of the festival….

You guessed it, Bar Ikigai’s winning signature cocktail is going to be available on their menu for everyone to enjoy at £9 until October 2022. So if you didn’t get a chance to try their winning cocktail during BCW2022 you now have one more opportunity to try the drink that festival go-ers were raving about!

Bar Ikigai now joins the ultimate BCW champions list:

Bar Ikigai – 2022 Winners

Hotel du Vin – 2021 Winners
Bourne & Co. Cocktails – Winners in 2019
Harvey Nichols Bar – Winners in 2018
Be At One New Street – Winners in 2017

Who will win the 2023 competition? As ever, you decide! 

So if you attend our next festival, be sure to look out for that voting link.
