Running for its sixth year, the annual competition has asked bartenders to create a cocktail using a minimum of 25ml of Jägermeister, Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee or Jägermeister Manifest.

Mast-Jägermeister UK brand ambassador Florian Beuren said: “The competition is about changing the perception of bartenders as it showcases Jägermeister from a different angle. Most people know Jägermeister as a shot, which is what we are, but also a lot of people don’t know that Jägermeister is a fantastic mixing spirit which is super versatile and adds layers of flavour to drinks and cocktails due to its 56 botanicals.

“The Meister Hunter competition was designed to send bartenders on a six-month journey where we get to showcase to the competitors the value of the brand as well as provide insight about the rich heritage and history of our German herbal liquor.

“Over the years the competition has grown, and we have created memories and friendships, which is fantastic as even though it’s a competition, we want the competitors to have a good time and give something back to the bartending community.”

Each entrant’s cocktail submission may contain a maximum of five ingredients, without garnish.

Entries must be made via Instagram and include a video or image of the cocktail, plus its name and specification. Posts must tag the Meister Hunter Instagram page @meisterhunter and use the hashtag #meisterhunter23.
