This year’s Bar and Cocktail competition has taken a new step, and I was delighted to witness how much interest it has generated amongst our guests.

The event started with a classical approach to bartending, and ended in music with Mauritius’ living legend of flairing, Joao.

The jury panel was composed of the European chefs, who left the stoves in the kitchens for a couple of hours to sample the creations made out of Gabriel Boudier’s liquors.
