Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge 2018

Fancy winning a trip to Trinidad, $10,000 and a two-year contract? Of course you do. Entries for one of the most exciting cocktail competitions are now open, with Angostura calling on bartenders to compete in its Global Cocktail Challenge.

The brief is simple, to create a pair of modern classic cocktails. First, an original rum cocktail using at least 30ml of one of Angostura’s rums, as well as either Angostura Aromatic Bitters or Angostura Orange Bitters, or both. Second, an amaro cocktail, containing Amaro di Angostura, and also including one of Angostura’s bitters. Remeber to use no other rum or bitters brand.

Sucessful applicants will be invited to take part in the UK London-based final, with the ultimate victor packing their bags and heading off to sunny Trinidad early  next year, to compete in the global grand final.

Whilst in Trinidad, competitors will experience the famous Trinidad Carnival, and if crowned Global Champion, will win a sweet $10,000 cash prize and a two-year contract as Angostura global brand ambassador.

Sound like a bit of you? UK bartenders can enter via the Angostura website.

In addition to an online entry form, bartenders need to submit a video presenting their original rum cocktail, and a written entry of up to 200 words about the future of rum drinks in tiki bars, general cocktail bars, or in regular bars.

Shortlisted entrants will be notified by late September, with the final taking place in late October.

Hurry, entries close 10 September…
