Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Calling III winners had the opportunity to showcase their cocktails at one of the world’s best bars The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog in New York.

The crowned champions include Alex Walker from The Artesian at The Langham, London, Ben Alcock from HMSS/Filthy XIII and Eric Tinca from Satan’s Whiskers.

In early December, from 6.00pm to late, the bar’s Occasional Room played host to Tennessee Calling III, an event designed to celebrate the winning drinks of the three bartenders inspired by their interpretation of entrepreneurialism, creativity and quality and consistency.

Launched earlier this year, the competition is inspired by the mentorship of Jasper ‘Jack’ Daniel by Dan Call and master distiller Nearest Green.

It sees visionaries from the global bar community share their knowledge expertise and secrets with hungry young bartenders teaching them how to craft the perfect cocktail.

During London Cocktail Week in October, the bartenders were inspired and motivated by Dead Rabbit’s beverage director Jillian Vose to reach the next level in their careers.
