Who will be the Old Fashioned cocktail world champion?

Cocktails

Old Fashioned Week celebrates the father of all cocktails, the Old Fashioned. Bartenders around the world will reach for their mixing spoons and show off their old fashioned and new fashioned creativity for ten days in November.

The international bar celebration, raises the standards even higher this year. It launches a challenge to bartenders and bars to create the best Old Fashioned in the world – classic, contemporary, or avant-garde. The video-based competition is open only to professional bartenders, and the top prize comprises a tailormade suit and a hosted three-day visit to Paris Rum Fest 6-8 April 2019.

All set for Old Fashioned Week 1-10 November 2018

Full rules and more information can be found on www.old-fashioned-week.com. Bartenders are invited to submit entries before the closing date 30 November and can therefore reflect their best creations from Old Fashioned Week (OFW) earlier in the month.

Judging criteria include originality, the recipe itself, technical mastery, quality of the video, and level of social media engagement and ‘likes’. Results will be announced on 15 January 2019. This new feature is in partnership with one of OFW’s sponsors, Toschi Amarena red cherries. Michael Landart, co-founder of OFW and owner of Paris bar Maria Loca, will head the judging jury.
