Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Calling, a cocktails competition to find the best cocktail creator in the North West, is happening this week in Manchester. As a big lover of all things Whiskey, I couldn’t wait to try one of the entries.
Ten cocktails creators have been tasked with creating a new cocktail inspired by JD.
Three finalists will be selected from the top 10, and they will be whisked off to the home of Jack in Lynchburg, Tennessee where they will get the tour of the Jack Daniel Distillery, followed by an opportunity to host an event at The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog (apparently the World’s best bar).
Heading up the campaign at Epernay is Tatjana Titmova, who concocted the ‘Meet me the Lynchburg Highway’
The cocktail included cynar, peychauds bitters, absinthe and Spiced Wine – and of course generous shots of Jac Daniel’s. It tasted fantastic, with the bitter really adding a welcome contrast to the whiskey.
Good Luck to Tatjana and the rest of the entrants – we’ll let you know who wins! 🙂
