Conker Spirit Cocktail Competition

The Conker Spirit Cocktail Competition took place throughout the 2017 Festival. In the weeks leading up to the Festival weekend, visitors were able to enjoy Conker cocktails created by competing venues  whilst a Secret Shopper judged them for the prestigious ‘Best Venue’ award, which was won by Bodega in Wick Lane.

On the Sunday afternoon in the Lovett Demonstration Theatre at the Festival Village on Christchurch Quay, all the venues competed for the ‘Best Bartender’ award, putting forward their best mixologist to show off their Conker Cocktail in a live free demo to the public and a panel of expert judges.  The winner was Lilly Hirst from The Kitchen at the Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa
