The Victorian State Finals of the Angostura Cocktail Challenge were held last night at Melbourne’s LuWOW bar where eight bartenders competed for a spot in the Oceania Finals that will be held on October 30.
Kash Wall from Spice Temple took out the top spot with a convincing win that saw her receive the highest scores from the three judges for her two cocktails for the competition, The Day Breaker and Night Rider.
Also competing on the night were Kylie Kearney, Shaun Byrne, Kyle Aitken, Michael Prosser, Andrew Buykx-Smith, Kayla Spencer and Evin Craney.
The NSW finalists will be showcasing their skills and aiming to earn their spot in the Oceania Finals next Monday September 3 at Sydney’s Pelicano Bar.
Competing on the night will be Ben Blair, Jean Munos, Guillermo Arnal-Machado, Igor Pachi, Marko Farac, Dula Lorenzo, Kevin Peters and Jessica Arnott.
The event starts at 7pm and the first 100 people through the door will receive a free drink card, along with the opportunity to win the lucky door prize of a bottle of Angostura 1919 rum.
