Hennessy Cocktail Connoisseurs Competition

Nicole Hollinger Events

The third annual Hennessy Cocktail Connoisseurs Competition took place on Monday 28th August 2017 in the Muddlers Club where 9 talented barmen and women shook and stirred in front of the judging panel to win a VIP trip to Cognac to visit Maison Hennessy and Chateau Bagnolet!

For this event, MCE Events created a running order that would allow optimum time for each contestant to set up, make their cocktail and clean away in time for the next. With 9 contestants and a short window of time, it was imperative that every second was accounted for. As well as this, MCE Events also liaised with third party suppliers. For example, all the furniture in the restaurant needed to be removed and then re-instated the next day therefore MCE Events researched and hired a reputable firm to look after this.

MCE Events were present on the day and the evening of the competition to assist room set up and PA. When the competition began, MCE Events worked closely with compere Pete Snodden to ensure that the evening ran smoothly and to also assist the competitors with set up.

Following on from the event, the next day MCE Events visited the Muddlers Club to ensure the furniture had returned safely and to assist with the removal of additional props.
