CAULIFLOWER HOTEL AND FORGOTTEN CASK LAUNCH BIG-TICKET MAI TAI COMPETITION
The team behind Sydney’s Cauliflower Hotel are again growing its legend, launching a Mai Tai competition for Australian drinks professionals and rum aficionados.
Justin and Pippi Drew took over Waterloo’s Cauliflower in mid-2015, and dived straight into self-promotion with a combined Footy Finals and Oktoberfest party.
Thursday, 11 May will see the launch of the Chairman’s Reserve Mai Tai Australia Competition in Forgotten Cask, inviting bartenders to vie for prizes and bragging rights.The Drews also operate Big Island Operations, holding the exclusive rights to import St Lucia Distillers rums, famously creating Chairman’s Reserve. In sympathy, they opened the Forgotten Cask Rum Bar upstairs at the Hotel.
Rum enthusiasts and hospitality professionals are invited to attend the ticketed event, which will feature St Lucia Distillers’ Michael Glaize representing the Chairman’s Reserve Brand to present a Master Class on the coveted rums.
Guests will receive a complimentary Mai Tai on arrival, followed by a tasting of the Chairman’s Reserve Range: Gold, Spiced, The Forgotten Casks and 1931 1st edition. All ticket-holders also go into a draw on the night for a bottle of Chairman’s Reserve The Forgotten Casks.
