The Bloody Mary Competition was the brain child of Manager Peter Stevens who has a personal passion for well-made, high quality Bloody Marys. The Bath Arms, passionate about sourcing locally - Godminster horseradish infused vodka was the obvious choice when choosing a local supplier. Its made locally with Bloody Marys in mind. The idea to invite like-minded local bar tenders from hotels and pubs with a similar passion, creating the ultimate Bloody Mary - after all its the perfect hangover cure!
Once mixed and created the Bloody Marys were judged by the expert panel of judges Viscount Weymouth, Yvette Thomas Wiltshire Magazine, Barry Harding - Frome FMs The Taste of Somerset presenter, Richard Hollingbery, Director at Godminster. The criteria taste, texture, innovation and presentation.
