Here Are the Results of the 2015 Devour Phoenix Bartending Competition

Nine Valley bartenders went head-to-head for the title of Best Cocktail in The Valley 2015 yesterday at Crescent Ballroom during the Devour Phoenix Bartending Competition. The event, the second high profile bartending competition held this spring, featured bartenders from local restaurants including Crudo, Citizen Public House, Hula's Modern Tiki, and The Parlor.

Each bartender was assigned a locally distilled spirit -- either Arizona Distilling Company's gin, bourbon, or moonshine, and during the competition, bartenders faced off in three rounds of three people. Competitors were given a generous ten minutes to make their cocktail for a panel of four judges.
