After four weeks of tasting by almost 100 judges, the 2014 Bartender’s Best Award results are in.
If, in recent months, you had to wait a little longer than normal for a cocktail in London’s bars, it is probably because half the bartenders were judging the Bartender’s Best Awards (BBA).
Over a four week period, 80-odd bartender judges, along with 18 senior judges, blind-sampled and rated all of the brands entered to the BBA’s; a Herculean task at the best of times – more so when the judges are bartenders working shifts in busy bars.
The BBA team have pulled it off however, and the results are in: an announcement was made at London’s NOLA bar yesterday evening (27th October, 2014).
Congratulations to the brands who have won their categories, and to everyone who put their effort and considerable time into making these, the first bartender-judged spirits awards happen – a resounding good job.
