Your Imagination Could Change Your Life, Are You Ready?

 Every glass is a blank canvas waiting to be stirred, mixed, poured and adorned unlike any other cocktail in the world!

The USBG Most Imaginative Bartender Competition Presented by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® is where new ideas and ingredients blend together to create the extraordinary. It’s this melding of thoughts and inspiration where creativity is born. 

 

Now in its 12th year, the competition seeks out bartenders who are at the forefront of artistry in cocktail-making. The finals will take place in London, which is located near Laverstoke Mill, home of the renowned BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin distillery. 

Enrollment is completely free, but space is limited! You only need to bring your ingredients for two portions, glassware, and bartending tools to the events. You’ll be asked to create an original cocktail, which will be judged on Flavor, Appearance, Bartender Presentation and Imagination. Here are some important cocktail requirements that you’ll want to keep in mind. Coming out of the local competitions, 70 bartenders from the United States will be selected as regional finalists and will advance to one of eight regional competitions. 

The Regional Finals will take place between May 21, 2018 and June 26, 2018. 

Two winners will be selected from each regional competition to move on to the finals in London.
