Last year The Blend Invited Apprentice and Professional bartenders across Australia and New Zealand to submit their ‘Whiskies of the World’ cocktails in September. 500 entries were then blind judged by a panel of expert judges and narrowed down to category finalists within each state. A festivity of State finals then took place across Australia and New Zealand during the months of Feb-April.
The 12 state finalists then progressed to the Grand Final: four days of adventure, workshops and a whole lotta Bourbon!
