What went down? –Bacardí Legacy Cocktail Competition 2013 Sweedish Qulification Final
It all started with close to 50 bartenders all over Sweden sent in their best cocktail recipe. Our jury

closer presentation and tasting. The most solid concepts, cocktails and presentations got further
chosen to compete in front of the international jury, audience and the other contestants in the grand
The final took place at restaurant and bar Och Himlen Därtill located on the 26 th floor at the
famous building Skrapan on Södermalm in Stockholm. The jury consisted of Richard Man, Bacardi
Ambassador in Sweden and Denmark; Jimmie Hulth, last year Swedish winner of B.L.C.C. and top
finalist in the global Legacy competition; Ian Burrell, international rum ambassador and Jörg Meyer,
international lecturer of cocktails and bartending and owner of well renowed bar Le Lion Bar de Paris
and the Boilerman Bar both located in Hamburg, Germany.
The day started with inspirational presentations about Bacardí Legacy Cocktail Competition by
Jimmie Hulth, How to Lose a Cocktail Competition by Ian Burrell and Club de Cantineros by Jörg
Meyer. After that it was time for each contestant, in front of the jury, to present the marketing
campaign they have had the last two month to implement for their cocktail and themselves. To
loosen up a bit and take away the drama the others did a little re-match style speed competition
against each other. Champion was Andrea Patelli who beat them all in a battle of the quickest Mojito
When the night came and the audience started to fill up the place it was time for the real battle!
Each contestant was given 7 minutes to entertain, charm and prove to the jury and the massive
crowed that their cocktail was the true Legacy Cocktail of 2013. After a very close and hard call a
winner was crowned: Boudy Ghostine from the bar Miss Voon in Stockholm. Boudy will represent
Sweden in the Global in Puerto Rico in May 2013. Well fought everybody and good luck to Boudy
