South Africa's best bartender, Owen O' Reilly, will be heading to Glasgow next week to compete in the World Class Bartender Competition finals.
Speaking ahead of his trip, O' Reilly said he hopes to wow judges with his homegrown Rooibos brew.
For the international championship, each participant had to come up with a commercial cocktail concept that would also benefit impoverished communities.
O' Reilly said a canned rooibos tea-based mix which he has named Vuka was an obvious choice.
"Rooibos is indigenous to South Africa and speaks to the country’s rich heritage," O' Reilly said on Friday.
