Hartford Cocktail Competition Features Larios Gin

By March 28, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Brescome Barton hosted a cocktail competition featuring Larios Gin at Tisane Euro-Asian Cafe in Hartford on Feb. 19. New to the market from Beam Suntory, Larios Gin was created from more than 150 years of history, made in Malaga “with a French heart, Spanish touch and Mediterranean character.” Local bartenders used Larios Gin Orange Blossom and Larios Gin Rosé expressions to create their best Valentine’s Day-themed cocktails. Each beverage was evaluated by the judge’s panel: Jillian Carey, Account Development Manager, Brescome Barton; Dan McManus, Sales Representative, Brescome Barton; and Clarissa LoNero, Tisane. The top three winning bartenders were Samantha Winters; Eric Sepulveda, Plan B, West Hartford; and Mary Schnabel.
