February 26: Old Fashioned Face Off

The original Old Fashioned was rye whiskey, a sugar cube dissolved with a splash of water, and a couple dashes of bitters served over ice. As makers of the tastiest whiskies in America, we decided that there was no better way to prove it than to have another cocktail competition – an Old Fashioned Face-Off! We invited bars and restaurants across Central Oregon to submit their Old Fashioned to see who truly makes the best Old Fashioned cocktail in the land.

From January 30th through February 13th, bars and restaurants across Central Oregon will be competing in the preliminary rounds to see who makes the best Old Fashioned. Make sure to vote for your favorite Old Fashioned below to help your favorite bar or restaurant make it to the finals.

Vote and purchase tickets at the link below for the February 26th event! The top 6 bars and restaurants from the preliminary round will be competing live at our Downtown Bend Tasting Room in front of a panel of three judges and an audience of spectators. This is a real time cocktail competition, so make sure to show up early (doors open at 12:30) for a good seat and to try all the cocktails as they’re being made!

Who will take home the trophy and win money for the charity of their choice? Join us Sunday, February 26th to find out. Your ticket will grant you access to the event, allow samples of all the entries (please note – they will be dispersed as the competition progresses. Stay for the whole event to try them all!), and the ability to cast your People’s Choice vote as the competition rages.
