The jury, composed of two members of Jack Daniels, commented on how gifted and surprising the three competitors were,  and stated that: ‘the overall level here in Constance Hotels and Resorts is higher than in the rest of Mauritius, the only thing they lack being self-confidence’. Another great night spent with Chamarel Rhums, for both the competitors and our guests.
