National Finalist for Starward Whisky Constellations Cocktail Competition || Hot Tamale Darwin

Congratulations to our own Anneliese Grazioli for winning the northern territory state final for the Australian Whisky Starward Constellations Cocktail Competition. She will be heading to the national final in July to represent the Northern Territory at the distillery in port melbourne.

To enter this competition you needed to create a cocktail that was inspired by ‘home’. The Northern Territory had six bartenders in the State Final and Anneliese took the top spot with her cocktail ‘The Market Moment’. Our bartender Mathew Zarimis was just behind her in second place with his cocktail ‘Thribi Life’.
