Sahara’s Jack in Black

Location: North America, USA

Dean MacGregor, of Sahara in Reading, was rather far from home when he took top prize in the UK Jack Daniel’s Birthday Cocktail Competition recently.

Held near the Jack Daniel Distillery in Tennessee, MacGregor was up against a number of regional UK finalists. Contestants needed to create a sharing cocktail using Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 and no more than six other ingredients.

His drink, entitled Jack in Black, drew on the brand’s history with music, and was served from a barrel, into four jam jars. It included cherry preserve, Cherry Marnier, Opal Nera black sambuca, lemon and cranberry juices, and Fee Bros Barrel Aged Bitters.
