Three talented bartenders compete in three timed challenges that will test their skills as a bartender, prove their knowledge of spirits and showcase their talents as a mixologist. Follow along as they compete by mixing and creating both classic and original cocktails using a featured spirit, secret ingredient and follow a theme. Learn about the history of spirits and cocktails and how you too can create craft cocktails.
The show will be filmed at Denmark on High in Columbus, Ohio by freelance film maker Benji Robinson and his crew. Our host is the talented actress (and bartender) Misa Farslow. The judges are Garry White, principle and bartender at Denmark on High, Nicholene Swartz, founder of Roake tonics and Blair Beavers, co-founder of Columbus Craft Cocktail Tour. The first three contestants are Todd Adam of The Bar at Hyde Park, Sami Baker of Blind Lady Tavern and Alex Chien of Watershed Restaurant and Bar in Columbus, Ohio. The theme for the first show is Hemingway and the featured spirit is Distillery No. 209 Gin.
If the pilot is a success, we have several more episodes ready to be filmed and hope to attract bartenders from around the globe to compete.
