Entries for the 2017/2018 Bacardi Legacy Australia Cocktail Competition close on Monday 2 October, so if you haven’t entered yet, time is running out.
Bartenders have only a few days left to finesse and submit their Legacy cocktail creation to make it through to the Top 30; Bacardi say they’ve received a record number of entries to date at this point in the process so it’s all shaping up to be a big one.
Now in its fifth chapter, Bacardi Legacy was established to challenge the best contemporary bartenders in the world to create their own cocktail Legacy – that will stand the test of time and ensure that both bartender and beverage are remembered like the illustrious classic cocktails of the past.
Drinks such as the Daiquiri and the Mojito are now revered as classic and are as much part of the unique legacy of Don Facundo Bacardi Masso as the rum itself.
This year’s entries have an incredible opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Fred Siggins, Alissa Gabriel, Andrew Bennett, and this year’s Australian Legacy title-holder, Dave Kerr.
The winner of the Australian Grand Final in 2017/18 will go on to represent him/herself and Australia at the Bacardi Legacy Global Final in Mexico City.
With an impeccable record of reaching the top 8, Australian finalists have proven their skills to the international bartending community.
Their incredible performances have gained them not only personal notoriety, but recognition of Australia as a significant contributor in the development of the bartending profession worldwide.
Bacardi Australia’s continuous commitment to supporting their competitors each year helps these aspiring bartenders forge their place in the Australian cocktail industry and develop the individuals’ entrepreneurial approach to their career – keeping Don Facundo’s legacy of quality, entrepreneurial spirit and passion for innovation alive.
Bartenders can access the entry form via the official ‘BACARDÍ Legacy Australia’ Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the direct link. Upon completion they will also need to submit a photo of their original Legacy cocktail.
