The Bolivian Job

ON THE COVER: BOLÃVAR MARTINI BY KEVIN PETERS PHOTOGRAPHED BY: ANDREW JARVIE

Earlier this year, SouthTrade in association with Agwa de Bolivia, invited bartenders around the country to join the cast of The Bolivian Job and put their skills to the test in a blockbuster signature cocktail contest to capture the essence of this versatile liquor. The Bolivian Job cocktail competition was designed to get bartenders thinking of different ways to utilize Agwa in their bars, and bartenders were asked to upload a picture of their cocktail entry to the competition website: www.agwabolivianjob.com. Cocktail entries covered a range of styles including classic, contemporary, pre-dinner, after-dinner and long drinks, and they were judged on their presentation, the use of Agwa as a product, the cocktail’s balance and overall taste. The best three cocktail entries from each State, a winner and two runner ups, were chosen to be showcased in the Agwa Signature Cocktail booklet published by bars&clubs magazine. The winner from each State received a prize of $500 for themselves and $250 for their venue. The five state winners were - Matt Nethercote from Manhattan Bar in Queensland, Dimitri Rtshiladze from Malt Supper Club in Western Australia, Monnie Place from Cushdy in South Australia, Kevin Peters from Lo-Fi and The Standard (ex Curve, Perisher) in New South Wales and Camille Vidal from Golden Monkey in Victoria. The five finalists’ cocktails were then put to a public vote to decide the winner of the inaugural Agwa Bolivian Job competition, with Kevin Peters walking away with the title and the $2000 prize. Make sure you contact your SouthTrade representative or keep checking the website (www.agwa.com.au) to find out when The Bolivian Job is on again in 2012. Cheers, AGWA DE BOLIVIA & The SouthTrade Team
