New Britain Cocktail Competition Features New Brazilian Gin

By April 2, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Brescome Barton, in collaboration with Fruitful Mixology, hosted a cocktail competition featuring Amázzoni Gin at The Industrial Cocktail Bar in New Britain on Feb. 27. Seven local bartenders created their best craft cocktails featuring Amázzoni Gin as their base spirit, using a variety of creative ingredients and garnishes for a panel of blind judges. The winners were Zach O’Brien, Max Fish; Dustin Amore, Little River Restoratives; and Zach Lyons, New England Sales Manager, Fruitful Mixology. Amázzoni Gin is made from five botanicals unique to the Amazon: cocoa, the Brazil nut, cipó cravo (clove vine), maxixe (spiny cucumber) and water lily seed, which come from all five regions of Brazil, paying tribute to the country’s ecological diversity, as well as ingredients that include juniper, citrus, coriander, laurel and pink pepper. Amázzoni Gin is distributed in the state by Brescome Barton.
