Are you a bar man? Creative cocktail genius? Lover of the Boston shaker? Are you a cocktail mad scientist? Do you dream about how to use herbs in cocktails? Do you have more than four types of bitters in your liquor cabinet? Do you have a smoke gun?
The 2017 USBG Most Imaginative Bartender (MIB) competition presented by Bombay Sapphire is kicking off March 15th. If you are an emerging bartender, if you answered yes to one or all of the questions above, you can submit your most imaginative cocktail creation for a chance to compete with the cream of the crop in LA, San Diego and Hawaii. And for the second year in a row the top 12 regional finalists will travel to London, the home of Bombay Sapphire and its new Laverstoke Distillery to vie for the 2017 North American Title.
The submission period is from March 15th to April 13th. The judges will then narrow it down to 120 top bartenders who will compete for a chance to represent their hometown as one of 12 mixologists from across the continent. The semi finalists will be announced on May 15th. The regional finals competitions will take place throughout the month of May and June.
RECRUITMENT/SUBMISSIONS PERIOD: March 15 through April 13th. To enter click here.
