TN Calling winners 2019
Two Jack Daniel's saloons were resurrected by the Tennessee Calling IV finalists in a bartending showdown. With support and mentorship from Tom Loosli, Original Sin and Rich Hunt, Mint Gun Club, the Team Red Dog and Team White Rabbit competed over two nights to win a trip of a lifetime.
In the fourth instalment of Tennessee Calling, two teams of six finalists came together to compete in the ultimate bar-takeover challenge in London.
Following careful consideration, the judges Erik Lorincz, bar owner of Kwānt, and Cam Dawson, Jack Daniel's UK Brand Ambassador, named White Rabbit the worthy winners. Besides having created an excellent concept and fine establishment, the team were praised for their beautiful menu design, superb service and well-thought-out bar decor.
"From start to finish it has been an incredible experience to be a part of resurrecting the iconic White Rabbit Saloon for Tennessee Calling IV. I am incredibly proud and inspired to have seen such a disparate group of finalists come together as a rock solid team to take this year's title," said Rich Hunt, White Rabbit mentor and owner of Mint Gun Club.
Congratulations to Team White Rabbit, the winners of Tennessee Calling IV who will be jetting off on a VIP trip to Nashville and the home of Jack Daniel's, Tennessee, USA!
