Gin Mare Mediterranean Inspirations, The Experience

6th November, 2012 by admin

In September premium gin brand Gin Mare flew a selection of bartenders our to the Mediterranean paradise of Ibiza for the final of its annual cocktail competition.

Seven finalists from around the world competed for the chance to win €4,500 plus the role of a part-time brand ambassador for Gin Mare.

Gin Mare, which features botanicals such as basil and thyme, wanted to use the Mediterranean Inspirations competition to communicate the core values of the brand: Lifestyle, Escape, Climate and Gastronomy.

The best way to do so, it felt, was to demonstrate it to them through a trip to its idyllic private villa in northern Ibiza, as depicted in this video.

Watch exclusive interviews with all the finalists here.
