Ascendant Spirits Co-Sponsors SB Independent's Whiskey Cocktail Contest

On Wednesday Ascendant Spirits' very own Master Distiller Steve Gertman helped judge the Santa Barbara Independent magazine's 6th annual amateur cocktail competition at Wildcat Lounge in downtown Santa Barbara. This year, with its occurrence so close to St. Patrick's Day, the theme was "Whiskey Rebellion" -- you guessed it, every cocktail featured some form of whiskey, bourbon, or scotch. Contestants made some amazing concoctions using lots of citrus (grapefruit, clementine oranges), maraschino cherries, BACON (bourbon's best friend), spicy bloody mary mix, shrimp... the list goes on.
