Evolutionary Cocktails

Innovation awarded* Barwin uses cranks and bottles accurate enough to serve exactly the same cocktail over and over again. But instead of doing so, Barwin employs an evolutionary algorithm to create a unique mix for each customer. This mechanism simulates a population of cocktails that evolves over time, making each generation meet the common taste more efficiently than the former. To help the population evolve, the client is asked to evaluate each drink. YOU decide if your cocktail can pass its properties to the upcoming generation, or if it is erased from the gene pool. When evolution succeeds, the fittest cocktails will survive and some barkeepers may lose their jobs.
