On Monday, 10 finalists competed in the inaugural Fenjiu Cocktail Competition – thought to be the “UK’s first” baijiu cocktail competition.

Held at The Connaught Bar in London, the judging panel comprised: Brian Silva of Rules, Alessandro Palazzi of Dukes Hotel, Enrico Gonzato of The Stratford, and Matt Harrison from Speciality Brands.

Andrea Dionori (pictured centre) from Crazy Bear grabbed the top accolade for his creation, The Golden Empire. For winning, Dionori receives an all-expenses-paid trip to China to visit the Fenjiu distillery. Furthermore, he will claim the title of Fenjiu ambassador for one year.

Second place in the competition was awarded to Kisa Yang from Annabel’s (pictured left) and third place was given to Paolo Lazzarich (above right) from Soho House.
