Toronto Cocktail Conference Recap

Headed to China for the Camus Cognac Shanghai Shake!

SsI'm delighted to be visiting Shanghai for the first time this early September as a judge for Camus Cognac's Shanghai Shake global finals!

Bartenders from six designated regions were tasked to come up with a variation on a classic cocktail using Camus' new line of "intensely aromatic" cognac blends. They'll compete by showcasing the cocktail that won them a place in the global finals, along with a "mystery box" ingredient challenge. 

My fellow judges are:

  • Cyril Camus, 5th generation of the Camus family
  • Geo Valdivieso, Camus global brand ambassador
  • Irina Chesnokova, actress and World Class competition judge
  • Christian Davis, Drinks International Magazine editor

The competition takes place on September 9th at Bar Rouge in Shanghai, and I'm very excited for it!

The schedule of judging looks pretty intense so I'm not sure I'll be able to post much on social media while live on the ground, but you can follow Camus' social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram
