THE GABRIEL BOUDIER WIZARD AWARD
The family-owned liqueur distillers Gabriel Boudier have long been famous for their wizardry in creating new flavours – and combinations of flavours – to add to their award-winning range of 100% fruit liqueurs. In 2015 Emporia Brands, Gabriel Boudier’s UK importer and distributor, launched “the wizard award” to challenge the UK’s leading bartenders to create a unique new liqueur. Bartenders throughout the country competed through a series of regional heats, and the three finalists, the wizard of Scotland, the wizard of the north and the wizard of the south, had their unique liqueur judged in the final held at Gabriel Boudier in Dijon in January 2016.
This is a challenge for ALL BARTENDERS to create an original and unique new liqueur, with the opportunity for the winning liqueur to be adopted by Gabriel Boudier for a 2018 launch as part of their award winning Creme & Bartender ranges - plus a prize of £1000! A national competition dividing the UK into three regional heats, Wizard of the North, South & Scotland. The wizard that wins each of these titles will be invited to the Grand Final at Gabriel Boudier in Dijon in January 2018 and their recipe judged by the master wizards of Gabriel Boudier.
> 2018 UPDATE: 5 wizards made there way to Dijon, France for the Grand Final, these wizards were the winners of the regional UK finals (North, South & Scotland) and were invited to compete in the Grand Final at Gabriel Boudier Distillery. The winner was Maria with her Dijon Mustard Liqueur flavour which is due to be released in the Summer of 2018! More launch information coming soon!
