Live from Cognac: The G'Vine Gin Connoisseur 2011 World Finals Week

Hello from Cognac! I'll be covering the G'Vine Gin Connoisseur 2011 World Finals taking place this week, along with Emma of Gin Monkey

There are three days of challenges and fifteen bartenders in the competition, which culminates at the G'Vine Summer Ball in Cognac on Thursday evening. 

Last night we arrived from various places in the world and picked the bars corresponding to each bartender at the Summer Ball- important as the attendees will vote for their favorites and help choose a winner from among them.

And it's always a good thing when a week starts out with someone being blindfolded. 

Join me for posts here at random European hours, follow along on the G'Vine GCP 2011 Facebook page, and follow GVineGins on Twitter.
