Woodford Reserve has announced the winner of this year’s Manhattan Experience – bartender Jarret Holborough from Atlanta, GA. The national competition was held virtually for the first time, due to the global pandemic, bringing together some of the most talented mixologists from the US and Canada.

This year, the program saw hundreds of entries from around the country, who submitted their Woodford Reserve recipes to be recreated in New York and evaluated by an esteemed panel of judges, including legendary bartenders Julie Reiner, Charles Joly and Jacques Bezuidenhout.

“Once again the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Experience sets the bar for creating community through a competition. Making this happen was a huge undertaking, but well worth it. The competitors really did an amazing job adapting to the digital format and were so grateful for the opportunity to carry on with the competition given all of the hardships over the year. It was great to be a part of it,” explained Bezuidenhout.

Woodford Reserve is the sponsor of Liquor.com Manhattan Experience. The competition allows mixologists to showcase their skills, as well as challenges them to delve deeper into the profile of the Manhattan and its ingredients. This national cocktail competition welcomes talented mixologists as they create their own unique twist on the classic cocktail.
