MADE mixologist Steffen Zimmermann recently travelled to Stockholm, Sweden, and took part in
"ABSOLUT Invite", a Europe-wide competition featuring the continent's finest and most creative bartenders.
Over 30 bartenders from 10 countries experienced two full days of competition, which featured
a series of individual and group tasks, including mixing and presenting drinks to a jury,
as well as sensory (smell & tastes) and knowledge tests.
It was great to see how the bartenders - each armed with their unique flavors and styles -
came together in an exchange of creativity and knowledge, working individually and
in teams to master their craft through creativity.
teamMADE joined Steffen and documented his experiences during the competition...and here they are.
