Nc’nean Creations 2023 Regional Heats and Competitors Announced

Six Nc’nean Creations regional heats confirmed in May and June 2023

The Nc’nean Creations 2023 entry deadline passed on April 30th, and since then blender and ambassador Matt Hastings has been hard at work assessing the entries and arranging regional heats. As you can see from the lists below, the community responded to this comp with great enthusiasm, and entries came in from all over the UK.

The regional heats all kick off at 12:00 (11:30 arrival for competitors) if you would like to drop in and support a friend, or just watch the bartenders in action. You can also view the Nc’nean Creations 2023 Score card.

Congratulations to all the competitors, we hope you have a great time at your heat. And best of luck!
