Waypoint Spirits of Bloomfield featured its Labrador Noon Vodka, Wintonbury Gin and Man Overboard Rum at the “Farmer’s Market Iron Bartender Cocktail Competition” held at Flatbread Company in Canton on August 15. Six competitors from the greater Hartford area competed and were scored on presentation, taste and creative use of ingredients. The winner was Jessica Bishop. Judges were Myles Walsh, Flatbread Co.; Jenna Kijowski, “CT Ain’t So Bad”; and Shane Downs, Brescome Barton.

The following day, Waypoint Spirits set up a table alongside farmers and artisans at the Coventry Farmers’ Market on Sunday, August 16. “It was such a fun day… It was amazing to be able to get our spirits in front of people who have a deep appreciation of local, hand-crafted goods. We can’t wait to visit next year,” said Waypoint Spirits co-owner and partner John Taylor.
