The Australian Woodford Reserve Cocktail Challenge for 2017 is set to kick off this August. This challenges bartenders from across Australia to create their own take on the classic Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned as well as come up with an original Woodford Reserve Rye cocktail. The grand prize is none other than a personalised visit to the Woodford Reserve distillery in Kentucky and to New York City to attend the Manhattan Experience.
Entries open August 1 and run through to August 31. To enter, simply head to Woodford Reserve website here and submit your two cocktail creations. For the month of September then feature your drinks in your venue and the judging panel will visit your venue to judge your drink in person! Cocktails will be judged on taste and balance, creativity and originality, thoughtful and intelligent use of ingredients, and the intelligent use of Woodford Reserve. Winners will then be selected to compete at the State Finals, vying for position in the National Final in November.
