The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Sep 27, 2018

In this episode, we follow a group of mixologists from Northern Virginia through a harrowing, three-round cocktail competition hosted by Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. in Purcellville, VA.

They must create three original cocktails using the Catoctin Creek spirits as a base, while also featuring a secret ingredient that is reavealed at the beginning of each round.

The contestants are:

  • Phil Duong - AhSo (Brambleton)
  • Samet Yuksekgonul - The Conche (Village at Leesburg)
  • Andrew Jennens - Sense of Thai St. (One Loudoun)
  • Jeff Berry - The Wine Kitchen (Leesburg)
  • Sam Scarlett - Kinship (Washington, D.C.)

The contest was adjudicated by Catoctin Creek International Portfolio Manager Chad Robinson, Brian Jenkins owner of local restaurant Monk’s BBQ, and Trevor Baratko, editor in chief of the Loudon Times-Mirror.
