Competition closes at midnight on Friday August 17th, 2018
Regular readers will remember Gabriel Boudier’s Wizard competition, which ran throughout 2017 and challenged bartenders to create an original liqueur or crème.
The Wizard competition grand final took place in January this year, and was won by Maria Vieira of East London Liquor Company. Maria’s prize included the opportunity to work with Gabriel Boudier in order to put her liquid into production, and this new Mustard Liqueur is the end result of that collaboration.
Gabriel Boudier describe the new liqueur thusly:
“The ingredients are of course led by brown mustard seed from Burgundy, macerated for two weeks in fine alcohol. The supporting cast includes black mustard seed and a touch of pepper, with the balancing sweetness coming from both sugar and honey… This extraordinary and original liqueur achieves the tricky feat of balancing the heat of Dijon mustard with the sweetness required of a liqueur, and Maria’s signature serve provides a new take on the classic Bloody Mary…”
