ODK sponsor the SIP Flairshow in France
The Flairshow has been taking place in La Grande Motte in France since 2012 and we here at ODK have been supporting it since its inception.
We love supporting flair and cocktail competitions all around the world, particularly so when we get invited to be part of the judging panel too! We promise not to be too biased towards the ODK cocktails…
The SIP Flairshow incorporates cocktail making, flair bartending and also a barista contest – as the bartender of today needs to be as competent with hot drinks as they are with cold drinks.
Overall the international competition welcomed 17 bartenders from many different countries including Italy, Spain, Ukraine, Switzerland and France. This year’s winner was well known WFA flair bartender Eugene Sokolov from Ukraine.
Our new range of pure Lemon and Lime sours were featured in the competition for the first time this year with some great feedback coming back from the bartenders both on the look and feel of the bottle for flair; but also the taste and quality of the sour for the cocktails.
The competing bartenders also had a choice of our usual cocktail fruit purees and cocktail syrups for making their drinks.
The SIP Bartender Challenge and Flairshow is hosted and arranged by Bartending and Barista school Ecole Du Bar by Ypnotlk who also specialise in cocktail and barista catering.
