They always say that bartenders have to be good storytellers to do their job properly – after all, drink making is only part of the job when you have a bunch of thirsty patrons at the bar wanting to be entertained. Caorunn Gin is searching for mixologists who can shake up a mean one while also projecting their personality to those in the stools. The winner will get a pretty sweet prize – they’ll be able to compete at the Tales of the Cocktail competition in New Orleans this summer to see is the best storytelling tender.
To enter, bartenders have to concoct a drink that’s a “modern classic”, and mix it up while telling its story and entertaining the audience on a video. Four finalists will be chosen to compete in person at tales, and a group of spirits experts and writers will judge and award the glory to one victor. The US winner will head to Scotland to compete against bartenders from other countries. You can take a look at the rules and submission guidelines on their website: www.caorunngin.com/storytellersusa Get those good stories ready!
