Edinburgh Gin Cocktail Competition

On Sunday 13th February 2011 the first Edinburgh Gin Cocktail competition was held at The HydeOut bar, Edinburgh http://www.facebook.com/update_security_info.php?wizard=1#!/HydeOutEdin. Competing mixologists were set the challenge of creating an Edinburgh Gin based cocktail.  Judges Iain McPherson (The Voodoo Rooms), Martin Duffy (56 North) and Ed Baird (Emporia Brands) selected Dean Evan’s creation, the ‘Midgie Bite’, as the winner.  We were really pleased with how the competition turned out. Having received a lot of positive feedback from competitors, judges and spectators, we hope to hold more EG cocktail competitions in future . . . so keep your eyes open!  🙂
