The Havana Club Recipe Hub competition was not only the first online voting video cocktail competition we've run, I believe it was the first of its type in the world. The competition comprised 186 video entries, 245,222 video views (at the time of writing and not including additional views on other platforms such as YouTube and Instagram) and a €22,600 prize fund. So who won?

Before announcing the winners, I'd like to assure all that both Pernod Ricard (the Promoter) and Difford's Guide (the Organizer) are committed to ensuring this was a fair competition. To guard against specious and mendacious votes, all votes were verified as genuine by an automated program before being counted using industry standard known fingerprints of fraudulent voting. To ensure fairness, this application was applied to all votes for all competitors and no one competitor was singled out.

The winning videos are those which have received the highest number of points (not necessarily votes). Points are calculated by the star rating out-of-five each voter awarded a video. The minimum rating was 1 star and this equals 1 point. The maximum rating was 5+ stars which equals 10 points.

Without further ado...the winners are:

1st place and the winner of €1,000
Ruslan Gafurov: Russian Country Pina Colada

2nd place, winning €600
Bryan Bonifacio: Pina Cohiball

3rd place, winner €400
