The Competition Chairman Says…
The CEO of the Australian Gin Distillers Association Judith Kennedy AM invited me to Chair ‘The Australian Gin Cocktail Cup’ in 2018 and now 2019. I feel it’s a great initiative to have an independent Gin focused cocktail competition.
Bartenders notified and chosen as finalists will be given a choice from 70+ Australian gin brands (most brands will be taking part in the Sydney Gin Palooza) to choose for their cocktail recipe. So this competition will not only give some independence to the bartender but also potentially create more awareness of the Australian Gin market.
This year we have partnered with Artisan Drinks Co as the official mixer sponsor. The new premium mixer that is now available in Australia and launched in the UK in 2018. The range has a Classic London, Skinny London (low cal), Violet Blossom, Agave Lemon & Pink Citrus Tonics.
