The team here at Australian Bartender are stoked to be heading west next week for Indie Spirits Tasting Perth on Wednesday 15 March (if you still need tickets to this, click the link here). There will be loads of great indie brands on show — brands with great juice like Rum Diary Spiced Rum.
And we’ll be kicking off the week when Rum Diary Spiced Rum holds the Perth final of its cocktail competition, All Things Tiki, Land, & Sea at Mad Dogs Jungle Bar this Monday night.
They’ve selected the six best entries and those bartenders will be competing to see who goes on to represent their home state in the national final in Melbourne in January 2018 at The Rum Diary Bar. On Monday night they’ll battle it out in front of a tiki-loving crowd at Mad Dogs — the Perth trade is invited to get down to get tiki, have a ball, and cheer on some ace bartenders.
The six finalists are:
Elise Godwin – Dominion League
James Somerville Brown – Standard Bar & Kitchen
Yannick Douzals – Varnish on King
Saravanan Subramaniam – Print Hall
Daniel Hilton – Sweetwater Rooftop
Brook Copland – Chapas
Doors open at 5pm on Monday night, and you’ll no doubt be treated to a tikitastic display, banging drinks, and a great night — we can’t think of a better way to kick off an action-packed few days in Perth. Click here to get the details from the Facebook event page and we’ll see you Monday night!
