Tell us about the sour

The Gentleman Jack Whiskey Sour Classic is more than your typical cocktail competition. It’s an exploration of the sour as an important category of classic cocktails.

At each stage, you will be asked to explain and explore the origins of the sour. We want to understand the process and intent behind your version of the sour.

You will also need to highlight how Gentleman Jack has influenced your creation and give context to the decisions you made when creating this drink.
