Six finalists in the Tio Pepe Challenge will be competing for cash prizes Monday, Aug 17th at 3 PM EST.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and in the interest of safety, the Tio Pepe Finals in Miami and the Global Finals in Jerez were cancelled. Instead, the six (6) finalists chosen from the United States will be competing virtually via Facebook Live Broadcast on Aug 17th at 3 PM.

The six finalists include Abigail Gullo, Lance Bowman, Ricardo Acevedo, Trinh Quan Huy Philip, Sam Treadway, and Damian Langarica. Each are challenged to show off their skill with a venencia, with points for both style and accuracy, and also present their original sherry cocktail creation live.

The judges including Jeff Greif, Chilled Magazine Publisher, Daniele dalla Pola, Esotico Miami, Valentino Longo, Four Seasons Miami and Tio Pepe Challenge finalist 2018, and Alvaro Plata Franco, Tio Pepe Brand Ambassador will award cash prizes for the top three finalists: 1st Prize $2000, 2nd Prize $1000, and 3rd Prize $500.

The FACEBOOK Live Broadcast will be held August 17th at 3 PM EST. Please join and see which bartenders will take home the cash on Chilled’s Facebook page.
