About

Welcome to Tales of the Cocktail Foundation’s Most Imaginative Bartender Competition presented by Bombay Sapphire Gin. Now in its 14th year Most Imaginative Bartender is committed, now more than ever, to highlighting and celebrating the creative outlets of the bartender community. Truly bartenders are some of the most creatively diverse people on the planet and the main mission of MIB is to provide a platform to share those passions and bring them to light.

Covid 19 has and is changing the bar world forever but now more than ever we thought that a competition that celebrates and gives a stage for creativity is so important. We want to bring back MIB to show just how creative the hospitality community is and how we are stronger than ever together.

How you show the link behind your creative outlet, your creative process behind the bar and your inspired Bombay Sapphire cocktail could end up winning you a $20,000 creative grant to bring your creative outlet to life.

This is your chance to color outside the lines and bring your creative passions to a national stage.
