[Sponsored] You’ve one week to try cocktails inspired by the community heroes of some of Australia’s top bartenders
Chivas Masters Week celebrates the best bartenders (and some of the tastiest drinks) Australia has to offer. Chivas has selected six finalist bartenders from across the country who’ve impressed the judges with their bespoke cocktails, all of which you can try at your local bartender’s regular bar from April 16 to 22.
The theme of Chivas Masters Week is ‘community’, with each of the top finalists creating a cocktail inspired by someone special in their local community. From housemates to farmers each bartender has paid homage to someone who has played an important role in their community, and effortlessly encapsulated them in a delectable Chivas cocktail.
David Stucken of Perth’s Bar Lafayette is Western Australia’s only Chivas Masters finalist with his cocktail the ‘Daisy of New York’ ($21). An aromatic mix of bergamot juice, sandalwood orgeat, saffron bitters, Chivas Regal 18-year-old Scotch and raspberry, cacao and pinot syrup the cocktail is inspired by Stucken’s collaboration with a local farmer of Sandalwood nuts.
Head into your local finalist’s bar to try the limited edition cocktail and show your support. Throughout Chivas Masters Week there will also be nightly giveaways on Instagram where you can win a bottle of Chivas Mizunara to share with your friends. To enter just snap a pic of your favourite finalist's cocktail, upload it to Instagram and tag it with #chivasmasters.
