Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin launches its worldwide cocktail competition


The Opihr World Adventure Cocktail Competition 2017 is now open for entries to bartenders in Australia, Hong Kong, Germany, America, Spain and the UK.

Contestants will be given the chance to compete at the global grand final in Marrakech, Morocco to become the Opihr World Adventure Global Champion 2017.

Originally launched in 2013, Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin is inspired by a mysterious region in the Orient with exotic flavours carefully sourced from locations along the ancient spice route, including cardamom from India, spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia and coriander from Morocco.

These exotic flavours are at the heart of the competition and bartenders are invited to create an Opihr cocktail inspired by a location on the ancient spice route to win a place at the global final in Marrakech.

They will be challenged on innovation, thinking on their feet, as well as their creative use of Opihr. The winner will receive a trip for two to a mystery location on the route to live and breathe the essence of the brand.

Joanna Richardson, Opihr international brand director at Quintessential Brands said: “The Opihr World Adventure Cocktail Competition enables bartenders to immerse themselves in the mystery and exotic fusion associated with the ancient spice route to capture the essence of Opihr.

“We’re seeking the intrepid explorers of the international bartending community – those who are inspired by the spirit of adventure and fuelled by innovation – to embed the Opihr spirit into new, exciting cocktails. In 2017 we are excited to double the international reach of the competition to reflect the strong growth behind the brand.”

Joe Macbeth from the UK won the competition in 2016 with his cocktail Fragrant Harbour (pictured) inspired by his upbringing in Hong Kong. To enter the competition, bartenders should visit www.opihr.com/competition before July 1 2017.
