Cardenal Mendoza Seeks The Ultimate C Factor Cocktail
Award-winning Solera Gran Reserva Brandy Cardenal Mendoza has stunned mixology masters and drinkers alike.
Drinkers appreciate the smoothness, the taste, the sheer pleasure of a glass.
Mixologists, however, appreciate the remarkable complexity and depth of flavour that Cardenal Mendoza – made from the finest spirit and aged for an average of 15 years in Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry Wine casks – possesses. They’ve used it in cocktails, paired it with coffee, with chocolate, with Cola and cigars. THAT’S why we call Cardenal Mendoza’s X Factor the C Factor – and this year, we’re looking to the world’s leading mixologists to create the ultimate C Factor cocktail.
As well as seeing their creation featured globally during this year’s Golden Week – an annual celebration of this acclaimed brandy that runs between October 25th to 31st – the winning mixologist will win a trip for two to Jerez, to attend an exclusive Golden Week Cardenal Mendoza VIP event.
Judges for the C Factor Cocktail Competition include:
Julio Cabrera, Miami’s “King of Cocktails” with more than 25 years of experience.
Natalie Jacob, Mixologist and drinks stylist from NYC.
Mathias Soberon, Founder of “Served by Soberon”. a highly respected cocktail & drinks blog, and a regular judge for international cocktail competition.
The fourth edition of the Cardenal Mendoza Golden Week will take place in venues around the world from October 25th-31st 2019.
It’s a wonderful week celebrating a wonderful drink, featuring tastings, masterclasses, seminars, pairing events and cocktail sessions across the globe. Last year’s stand-out events included:
An exclusive pairing of chocolate, cigars and Cardenal Mendoza brandies in Madrid, in collaboration with the Scandinavian Tobacco Group, and the “C&C Cocktail” event in Puerto Rico with Cardenal Mendoza cocktails specifically created to include aromas of the cigars, chocolate or coffee;
Not to mention events in Panama, China, Ukraine, Greece, Germany, Italy…
For 2019, we’re working on more of the same – plus, of course, the exclusive VIP Event in Jerez, alongside the winner of our C Factor Cocktail Competition.
