Jefferson Hosts 4th Edition Cocktail Competition

Cocktail Judges: Todd Thrasher, Gina Chersevani, and Michael Woestehoff.

Washington, DC (March 14th, 2012) The Jefferson is one of the most recommended hotel hotspots in Washington. It is a discerning hotel, offering unparalleled service from beginning to end. Located just up the street from the White House, this hospitality gem has been visited by some of our Nation’s great leaders and international movers and shakers.

On Sunday, March 25, the Quill Bar is hosting the 4th edition of the Quill Cocktail Competition featuring A. de Fussigny Cognac. Exclusively distilled from two of the best cognacs in the grande and petite champagne regions of France, the Creation range appeals to a great number of enthusiasts thanks to the quality of wines and its complex and well balanced aromas.

Their historic cellar is located by the bank of the Charentes River, and makes for perfect humidity and is ideal for revealing all the aromas of the Cognac. This also allows more alcohol than water to evaporate and creates a rounder, more subtle cognac. From this, you will get rich ​aromas ​of ​buttery ​caramel,​ ​molasses,​ ​roasted ​nuts,​ ​clove,​ ​and ​dried ​cherries ​with ​a ​supple poached ​apple,​ ​and ​toffee flavor.

Join Todd Thrasher, Gina Chersevani, and me, The Washington Lobbyist, alongside other top area judges for this very special cocktail competition. Enjoy the cocktails of some of Washington DC area best bartenders and cast a vote for your favorite!
