Create a ‘Brocktail’ for World Gin Day

Brockmans Gin is marking World Gin Day on 8th June 2019 by inviting bartenders from around the world to enter their best Brockmans Gin cocktail in a professionals-only competition to find the best ‘Brocktail’ on the planet.

The winning bartenders will win a trip of a lifetime to Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.

The contest opens on Friday 12th April and bartenders need to ensure that inspiration strikes before 11.59pm BST on 26th May 2019, the closing date for entries. Bartenders, who must work in the on-trade, can submit an original cocktail recipe with an image and the name of their ‘Brocktail’ plus their contact details via the form.

When voting opens at 12 noon BST on Saturday 1st June, entrants need to ask their friends, colleagues and customers to vote for their cocktail. Whoever has accumulated the most votes by 5pm BST on 8th June will be declared the winner.

The results will be seen almost immediately via social media and the website. Voters can vote daily and customers have a chance to win a bottle of Brockmans Gin just by voting for their favourite bar’s cocktail via the same website link.

The creator of the winning cocktail and two runners-up will each win the trip of a lifetime with a guest each during the period 16th-19th July 2019, including flights, three nights’ accommodation, two nights at Tales of the Cocktail and a dinner with the Brockmans team.

For more information, mixologists from bars, pubs, hotels and restaurants should contact the relevant Brockmans representative or e-mail

Bob Fowkes, co-founder and Marketing Director of Brockmans Gin, said: “We’re excited to see not only what the world’s best bartenders will concoct in 2019, but what gin lovers will vote for. This contest is entirely down to the views of the voters across the world. We wish every bartender entering the best of luck.”

Entry Terms and Conditions will be available on the Brockmans website and a condition of entry is that entrants must be available to take their prize trip during the week specified as there are no alternatives to the prize.
