Glenfarclas cocktail competition now open


The Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength Cocktail Competition is now open to bartenders across the UK.

You must submit your ideas for a signature cocktail serve using Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength that’s in keeping with the theme of ‘family, community and independently sourced ingredients’, using a maximum of six ingredients. They also want a video of you making their proposed cocktail, which will be judged by an expert panel of professionals. Judging will be based on knowledge, presentation skills, cocktail-making techniques, ingredients and appearance.

Glasgow bartender Kevin Carr won Glenfarclas’ inaugural cocktail competition in 2019 with a summery pea-based serve. The competition was unable to go ahead in 2020 because of Covid-19.

Heats are planned for Glasgow, Manchester and London. Finalists will be invited to travel to Edinburgh for the final on 5 July, where the winner will be announced by George Grant, sales director and sixth generation family member to own and run Glenfarclas.

The winner will receive a two-day experience at Glenfarclas Distillery and a limited edition bottle of Glenfarclas.
