TUCK Gin Featured In Cocktail Competition

By September 4, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

Bar and Board Bistro hosted a summer installment of the cocktail competition series Cocktail Wars, created by Newport’s John Begin, on July 31. The competition challenged four bartenders to create their best cocktails using TUCK Gin as a base spirit: Christian Delvarano, Stoneacre Brasserie; Mitchell Swass, Breakwaters Cigar & Whiskey Lounge; Gabi Oliva, CJ’s Pub; and Sadie Housburg, Bar and Board Bistro. After creating variations for judges and guests, Housberg was crowned the winner and Oliva was named the runner-up. Jonathan Davies, Co-founder/President, TUCK Gin, was in attendance to lead a tasting and education of TUCK Gin & Tea canned cocktails, available in Black Tea and Green Tea flavors. Founded in Westport, Connecticut, by three friends, TUCK Gin takes its name from the Saugatuck River. The line includes TUCK Gin, TUCK Barrel Aged Gin (aged in French oak barrels previously used for red wine) and its TUCK Gin & Tea canned line, which takes its gin and creates a non-carbonated canned cocktail blended with organic black and green teas and a small amount of pure cane sugar.
