2019 Black Cow Cup

Closing date: 31 Jul 2019

Sustainable spirits brand Black Cow Vodka has rolled out the 2019 edition of its Black Cow Cup cocktail competition, which sports the wordily lavish theme of 'Synethstesia: Sonic cocktails, if music be the food of love, play on' (good luck saying that after a few sonic cocktails). 

This year's comp tasks bartenders with crafting a cocktail that uses sound to enhance the cocktail-drinking experience, considering how the senses affect taste. 

Applicants will compete in regional heats, and successful competitors will move on to take part in the Black Cow Cup Grand Final on 5 and 6 September, to be held at the Black Cow Distillery Bar + Kitchen in West Dorset. There, one lucky winner will ultimately be chosen to soothe their senses with a cool $1,500 (roughly £1,200), and to take home the Black Cow Cup. 

Keen on creating a symphony of taste and sound? Enter the competition here by 31 July.
