I’ve had a few people ask about the mixology competition at the Great American Distillers Festival last weekend and where they could find a list of those competing and the results. Unfortunately, the event web site doesn’t contain any of this information.
The final competition was also filmed and streamed over the web but I haven’t been able to find anything about it, so it may not still be available. I did find the video below, however, where you can see the end as the winner was announced. (If you know where I can find a longer video, please let me know.)
And here is the list of competing bartenders, the bars they represent, and the spirits used in the first round cocktails.
Lots of bars I haven’t been to in this list. I’ve got to try a few of these places out.
Reader SauceSupreme found the video of the finals! Unfortunately, the Livestream code is really buggy so there’s a bit of a trick to watching it.
In order to view this, click on Play. It’ll say that the clip isn’t available. Select the button below that says “On Demand” which then brings up a menu. Select the Mixmaster Mixology Competition, and then it will play.
