Cocktail Wars Finale TONIGHT…Here’s Last Week’s Action

By  |  0 Comments

Broken Shed provided the vodka, local bartenders provided the talent.

The semi-finals of Cocktail Wars Newport always get interesting, because the bartenders start to hit their stride. If they made it to the second round, they usually have some talent…and now that they know what to expect, the creative juices get flowing.



This season, the semi-finalists were also assisted by a liquor that’s very easy to work with, Broken Shed Vodka from New Zealand. They’re breaking into the Rhode Island market and if this demonstration of the product is any indication, they’ll do just fine.

The Finale

Tonight is the finale, so we’re going to see the top two bartenders from each of the semi-final rounds face off with…

Gin Lane 1751 “Victoria” Pink Gin

Another new product to Rhode Island, the finalists will be using Gin Lane 1751’s Pink Gin (infused with bitters).

Also of note is the panel of judges, featuring some of the top bartending talent in the area.

On hand, we’ve got Season 1 Champion, Jason Kindness of Kai Bar, Fluke Bartender and Gin Lane Representative Corey Hayes, Newport’s TALLEST bar manager Luke Devine and Cocktail Wars finalist Quinn Early.

Get to the Gas Lamp for 10pm. See you there.
