SPIRITZ Signature Cocktail

Four of Denmark’s leading cocktail barenders have agreed to participate in the SPIRITZ Cocktail Competition, where they will develop the West Coast’s signature cocktail of 2022.

One hour before the final, the bartenders will be presented with a selection of local beverages and natural flavourings from West Jutland, with which they will develop, flavour and name their bid for the year’s signature cocktail.

A professional panel of judges will tastes, assess and name the year's winner.

The jury is comprised of:

  • Jesper Uhrup Jensen, food critic and editor of Gastro Magazine
  • René Langdahl Jørgensen, beverage expert and food critic

The winner will be revealed and announced on stage at 18:00.

Competition participants are:

  • Kasper Riewe-Høgh, Bartender and owner of Copenhagen's Duck and Cover cocktail bar
  • Mia Hjorth Hansen, Head of Cocktail Creativity at Aarhus's Gedulgt cocktail bar
  • Jesper Skov, Bar Manager at the Peak 12 and Pier 5 hotels in North Jutland
  • The final judge will be named soon
