Italian liqueur brand Amaro Montenegro has announced the return of its The Vero Bartender cocktail competition.
The comp tasks bartenders with crafting a cocktail meant for sharing, with no more than five ingredients and with Amaro Montenegro as a base.
In September, competitors will take part in regional heats – 9 September at Arcane in Manchester, or 11 September at Hush Mayfair in London – where six bartenders will be selected to compete in the UK final, to be held at The Punch Room at the London Edition Hotel on 30 September.
From there, the national champion will get the opportunity to take part in a tour of three Italian cities with the other global finalists. The international final will then take place on 19 November in Milan, where one bartender will win a trip to New York for Bar Convent Brooklyn in 2020.
