Real McCoy Rum Picks Two for Barbados Brand Experience

Real McCoy Rum and Roth’s winning cocktail.

The United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) and Stonington-based brand, Real McCoy Rum, held its final bartending competition, “The Real McCoy,” on July 11 at the Ocean Cliff Resort in Newport. The competition spanned a three-month period during which bartenders submitted recipes each month highlighting the rum. Two winners were awarded an educational rum trip to Barbados and media training experience with Real McCoy Rum CEO and Founder Bailey Pryor. Maeghan Kleinerman, winner of the Recipe Rounds and David Roth, winner of the Live Mix-Off, will make the trip. Ginny Edwards won the People’s Choice Recipe at the event. All three winning recipes will appear on the Real McCoy Rum website.
