At the start of the year Emporia launched it's Distilleries et Domaines de Provence Absenteroux cocktail competition to celebrate the launch of the new expression Absenteroux. We asked bartenders across the country to create a cocktail using 35ml of Absenteroux and enter it into our competition.
After a huge response across the UK and even abroad we found 10 entries in each of the three regions (North, South & Scotland) and invited them to compete in a regional final.
The cocktails were at a high professional standard and the competition was tight, but the judges made a decision and chose three winners!
These winners are now on the way to Provence to meeting Distilleries et Domaines de Provence and experience the annual wormwood harvest in all its glory!
