Battle Of The Tenders 2023

March 19 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


It’s an all out, no holds barred battle to bartending stardom between tenders from across the state! Contestants will create their own creative cocktail using one common ingredient, Agave Spirits from Litchfield Distillery. It is then up to you & the judges to taste the cocktails and vote to decide who reigns king of the tenders!

The winning bartender will receive a $500 prize PLUS their drink will be featured on the summer cocktail menu at The Tavern in The Heritage Hotel! Second Prize winner will receive $200.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this event and showcase our Agave Spirits,” said Douglas Maloney, Brand Ambassador, Litchfield Distillery. “Our Agave Spirits is a growing expression in our portfolio and customers are really impressed with how smooth and ‘sip-able’ it is. It also makes fantastic margarita and Paloma cocktails.”


Admission is $10 Per Person & Includes: (21+ ONLY EVENT)

  • Tastings of competitors cocktails
  • Small Bites
  • Chance to win a Culinary Experience at The Heritage Hotel (Private Chef’s Dinner, Personal Litchfield Distillery Tasting, & an overnight stay for 2)

A cash bar will also be available during the event, and The Tavern will be open for dinner & drinks after the event. It’s also the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day, so we encourage you to dress for the holiday!
