This past Sunday Old Hickory had the pleasure of hosting The WhistlePig Best in Show Competition where the grand prize was to win a trip to the WhistlePig Farm! Local bartenders not only made the cocktails for the wonderful judges but also handed out samples to the guests. To top it off Ingrid Shawn Rodriguez, the Steward of the Brand for Northern Florida drove up to inform all of our wonderful patrons about WhistlePig. Here are the competitiors and where they represent:
Jeffrey Knott formerly of Seville Quarter
Kelly Blackwell representing Old Hickory Whiskey Bar
Andrew Pope representing Old Hickory Whiskey Bar
Noal Smith representing Old Hickory Whiskey Bar
Aaron Slayde Martin representing The Pearl RB
Patrick Bolster representing Union Public House
Taking home first prize and winning the trip to WhistlePig Farms was Pat Bolster from Union Public House, second was out very own Andy Pope, and third was Jeff Knott from Seville Quarter.
We had a blast having everyone come out and support your local bartenders and watching what they love to do!
