We were told about the three competitions taking place - all very exciting! One blogger will win the official NFW 2014 tee as modelled by Sandra at the event, before it goes on sale on 28th April - being one of the first to own it and of course, whoever gets it will probably be blogging about it!
They're also on the hunt for this year's official blogger, which is the one I'm possibly most excited about. It'd be an incredible opportunity so I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed for that! Last, but by no means least and the most difficult (in my opinion) is naming this cocktail below!
That piece of Macallan whisky barrel being burnt viciously with the blow-torch above is all part of the preparation for another cocktail, Locomotive. You may have guessed from the railway name, it is indeed inspired by George Stephenson and features a blend of Ron Zacapa 23, Newcastle Brown Ale syrup, Picon Italian aperitif and walnut bitters. It's got a smoky, musky scent from the barrel.
