Local bartenders have a few days left to get their entries in for this year’s Bols Around the World competition.

To enter the competition, now in its eighth year, bartenders need to head to the Bols website by February 24 to sign up. Competitors will then be tasked with creating a trend-driven signature cocktail as well as a drinks menu inspired by their entry.

Those that make it through to the next round will then have to upload a two-minute video where they discuss their drinks concept and make their entry cocktail. The semi-finals and grand final will be held from May 16-20 in Amsterdam.

“Bols Around the World is all about passionate bartenders, their lifestyle and their career. It provides a stage to share creativity and develop global contacts and exposes bartenders to different cultures and influences, resulting in lasting friendships and work in other bars around the world,” said Lucas Bols global brand manager, Ara Carvallo.

“Every year we are surprised by the way bartenders use Bols liqueurs and Bols Genever and then develop them further in their own creations to produce unique and delightful combinations. This reflects the culture at Bols and our firm belief that the best way to add value to the industry is by open innovation and close collaboration with bartenders.”
