And the winner is…
Big controversy in week 5 judging!
The first cocktail up for judging was a sloe gin, coffee & artichoke stir down (The Start of Something Beautiful) then followed by a mezcal tiki-inspired concoction (If You Know, You Know) before finishing on a coffee & maple old fashioned (Mr. Lumberjack). After judging the If You Know, You Know and Mr. Lumberjack were sitting on equal points – additional deliberation was undertaken to decide on a winner but it couldn’t be finalised. If You Know, You Know excelled in both presentation and originality whilst Mr. Lumberjack’s flavour profile was a great representation of a coffee cocktail therefore a draw was called!
