THE JURY HAS SPOKEN! Winner of the BEST CONFINEMENT TUTO (Confinement Bartender Contest)

Dear Bartenders, it has been three months of exciting cocktail creations during such a rough period due to Covid-19 where most of you had to stop shaking your shakers at your beloved bars.

Through the CONFINEMENT BARTENDER CONTEST we wanted to give you a chance to feel at the bar again pleasing a crowd with a great cocktail and a smile! We thank each one of you for your dedication, hard work and enthusiasm.

WE HAVE RECEIVED OVER 300 VIDEOS from all over the world and rewarded 58 bartenders so they could receive a 150 euros tip during this difficult time. To sump up, Spirits Hunters gave 15.000 euros to bartenders around the world to help them during the Covid-19 pandemic since their bars were closed.

As we reach the end of this competition, today we are excited to announce the BIG WINNER of the BEST CONFINEMENT TUTO after the jury’s deliberations.

Finally A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO CASTAREDE ARMAGNAC, GRAND MARNIER AND 1716 BITTERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT, and hoping that more brands will help us in the future to support bartenders.

Thank you to the IBA International Bartenders Association and the judges for being a part of this: René Delvincourt, José Raúl Aponte, Giorgio Fadda, Margit Kikas, Joaquim Lopes, Ricardo Guerrero Ojeda, Bruno Santos – Macau, Salvatore Damiano, Sheena Cullan, Steven Chen – Singapore
