It has begun. A schedule of awards dinners and holiday parties is once again about to grab media agencies by the collar and throw them headlong into champagne fountains across the country. So it’s nice to know some of them are managing to learn something along the way – about classy drinking, at least.

The inaugural Australian Blis Golden Shaker began in earnest a few weeks ago. Eight teams from some of Australia’s top media agencies have been learning how to mix cocktails with the best of them, courtesy of Blis.

In keeping with the highest traditions in media, the agency has a fully stocked bar in their office. Combined with some professional training from renowned bartender Toby Hiscox, Blis’ home base makes the perfect training arena for agency friends to flex their creative muscle with some top-shelf booze.

The competition comes to a rather snazzy finale this Friday at one of Sydney’s premier new venues, The Calyx. The eight agency teams will don their aprons and go head-to-head to be crowned Sydney media’s best cocktail makers, and receive the coveted Golden Shaker (made from actual gold, we’re informed).

B&T’s very own news editor, Huntley Mitchell won himself a spirited game of rock-paper-scissors against editor John Bastick and will be manning the judging panel alongside world-class mixologist Natalie Ng and Blis’ Aussie and New Zealand MD, Nick Ballard.
