This year the Gin Mare Mediterranean Inspirations competition is running a unique live update table.
The Gin Mare Mediterranean Inspirations comp is running back to back heats and a final at the Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch. Over three days the four judges will watch 30 presentations and try 90 drinks.
In a twist from the norm all the competitors from around the UK will be brought together over 3 days to present their drinks to the same 4 judges. There will be no top two from each day, instead there will be a continuously updated ‘Top Six’ list.
The top six will, on Friday, battle it out for the chance to represent the UK at the Global Final in Ibiza. The overall winner will be taking home â‚¬4,500 plus extra goodies.
After two days and 17 competitors we have a current top six. With one heat left anything can happen but as we stand the top six heading into Friday’s final are (in order):
Sam Baxandale, Bramble
Dan Warren, Strait & Narrow
Nathan Shearer, Callooh Callay
Sam Kirk, Peg & Patriot
Frederick Johnson, Hawksmoor
Adam Binnersley, Mojo
You can keep an eye on the live leaderboard here today as we update throughout the afternoon as the top six for Friday’s final are decided.
Feel free to come along and watch from 12:30 today and tomorrow and the bar is hosting a special industry party with plenty of Gin Mare & Tonics from 6:00pm tonight.
