Applications have opened for Chivas Masters, a global bartender competition from blended scotch whisky brand Chivas.
Now in its sixth year, the competition celebrates the individual blend that makes world class bartenders who they are and champions the spirit of collaboration.
Applications open in 13 countries across four continents. This year, bartenders are challenged to submit a cocktail inspired by their own unique “blend” of life experience, knowledge, interests and community that forms their identity.
The winning entrants will then compete in a national final, with one successful bartender from each country competing for the coveted title of Chivas Masters Global Champion 2019.
For the second year running, the Chivas Masters Global Final will take place in the UK, with challenges split between London and the Strathisla distillery in Speyside, the home of Chivas.
Across the competition, the participants will undertake a series of individual and team challenges, where their skills and creativity will be tested, proving that they have the right blend of qualities to be the pinnacle of their profession.
At the end of the week-long programme, the Chivas Masters Global Champion 2019 will be crowned, winning the opportunity to travel and work with Chivas over the coming year.
Rhys Wilson, global brand ambassador for Chivas, says: “Having participated in the Chivas Masters myself, I know the incredible journey that these bartenders are about to embark on.
“The Chivas Masters is not just the mixing of drinks – but the lasting bond and connection that it builds for participants in the bartending community.
“At Chivas, we believe that we can achieve the greatest success when we use our own unique blend and collaborate with others, and I can’t wait to see what this year’s participants bring to the table.”
