The World's Largest Negroni at Rock Salt


Ed Sargent and Ben Salguero who run the restaurant and bar at Rock Salt in Cotham Hill are no strangers to making a negroni, its one of the most popular cocktails on the menu. But this year they are poised to take their love of the classic tipple to a whole new level.

The duo have set themselves a challenge to create the world's largest negroni, one of Bristol's most loved cocktails. If they are successful it will earn them a place in the Guinness Book of Records and raise funds for StreetSmart, a charity that supports homeless people in Bristol and other major UK cities.

The current record for the largest Negroni is held by Sheldon Wiley and Joey Maggiore who produced a 504 litre negroni at The Sicilian Butcher Phoenix, Arizona, USA, on 24 October 2018. Ed and Ben aim to beat the record with a 600 litre negroni produced here in Bristol on 22 May 2022, the day of the Cotham Hill Street Party from 12-6pm.

A key ingredient of a classic negroni is gin so the team at Rock Salt has called upon Dave Blatch at Bristol Dry Gin to support their record breaking attempt. Bristol Dry Gin will produce 200 litres gin specially for the giant negroni and bottle the finished drink, ready to sell. Once the gigantic cocktail has been created, it will be bottled for those at Cotham Hill Street Party to enjoy.

Customers at Rock Salt will be able to buy a negroni for £8 with £1 from every cocktail sold being donated to StreetSmart and a 700ml bottle will be available to buy in the restaurant or on Bristol Dry Gin's website for £29 with £5 going to StreetSmart. For those eager to try, the bottle can be pre ordered online from the 1st April, and will also be on sale after the event.
