BACK TO THE ROOTS COMPETITION:
Past editions

"Back to the Roots" is a mobile competition, moving from place to place every year. It all started 2 years ago in Milan, Italy and last year we moved on to the UK and London. This year it is time to be on the US east coast !

The philosophy of the competition is always the same:

Back to the Roots: Simplicity, authenticity, heritage. Great drinks are easy to make, you just need unique ingredients & a story to tell
 

Moments from our last competition and the massive bar takeover last year at the Athens Bar Show:

Back to the Roots UK competition final, 2017
Cahoots - London
Judges: Simone Caporale, Ben Reed It was a simple, yet tough competition, as most finalists confirmed. The philosophy of Roots brings us back to the four basic elements of nature, where everything is elemental, natural and true.
