All the 2014 Spirited Awards winners are here


The 2014 Spirited Awards were announced last Saturday night. The Australian contingent was unlucky on the night, with Eau de Vie Melbourne, The Black Pearl, Hello Sailor, and Jason Crawley all coming away empty-handed (not that that stopped the large number of Aussies at Tales this year celebrating at the after-party — and the after-after party).

There was some success, however, with Aussie expat Iain Griffiths’ bar, White Lyan, coming away with the title of Best New Cocktail Bar.
