The 2019 Cocktail Challenge tasks the world’s bartenders with creating new drinks using Angostura’s portfolio of rums, amaro and cocktail bitters.

Bartenders interested in entering the contest should submit their recipes online at Successful entrants will then compete in the regional and national heats for a chance to reach the grand final in Trinidad and Tobago, which takes place in February next year.

While in Trinidad and Tobago, competing bartenders will experience all the island has to offer, including a tour of the Angostura distillery and museum, visits to local pan yards to see the island’s steel drum players, attend Carnival in full costume and more.

Those taking part in the contest will be vying for the title of Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge Champion, as well as a US$10,000 cash prize and a two-year contract as Angostura’s global brand ambassador.

Last year, New Zealand bartender Ray Letoa was crowned winner of the competition after impressing the judges with his rum-based Old Flame, which used Angostura 1824, Angostura Aromatic Bitters and Angostura Orange Bitters.
