Chase Vodka holds first cocktail competition


Warwick Colman from Alma de Cuba, Liverpool, won first prize. Second was Nic Friar, Bar Lounge, Chester; third, Li Armitstead, The Living Room, Liverpool; and fourth, Sammy Abdalla, Oxton Bar/Terrace, Wirral.

Four contestants went through to the final round in the Chase vodka cocktail competition, in which they had to mix cocktails in a ‘ready steady cook’ style using a mystery hamper of ingredients.
Warrick’s winning cocktail, Prince William’s Pursuit, was based on Herefordshire ingredients and it allowed the quality of the Chase vodka to show through and actually enhance its flavour. In the final round he had to think on his feet to make a refreshing lemon curd with a very clever name combining the Chase name and Warrick’s Australian roots: Chasen Donovan.
Warrick (pictured) said, “I wanted to tie everything into Herefordshire as there’s so much to be proud of there. I enjoyed the whole straight forward style of the competition, nobody as trying to be pretentious – everyone was just having fun and plenty of banter”.
