Late January in luxury surroundings at the beautiful Broholm castle. Absolut Vodka invited some of the best bartenders in the country to participate and measure their mixing skills.

They would be tested in creative mixing, sensory and knowledge against fellow outstanding mixologists. ART had been chosen as a platform. Therefor I was invited to be one of the four judges and my main focus was on how well the participants interpreted the theme and the artist and art they had chosen to design drinks inspired from.

Our judging was based on these criterias.

TASTE & SCENT

THEME ACCURACY

ABSOLUTNESS

(CREATIVE PRESENTATION)

The two guys who won will go head-to-head in the finals in Stockholm.

Among the other judges there was Nick Strangeway from London based Strangehill consultants who develop world leading drink strategies and Brian from Gastromand, one of the hippest foodblogs in DK. So I was defiantly in good company.
