Most Imaginative Bartender

Welcome to Tales of the Cocktail Foundation’s Most Imaginative Bartender Competition presented by Bombay Sapphire Gin. We are so excited to be back for a 14th year after what can only be described as a challenging 2 years. We felt that now more than ever we wanted to bring back this platform to show just how truly creative bartenders are and have had to be to survive the covid pandemic. We know it has been such a hard year but the main mission of MIB has always been to provide a platform to share your passions and help you bring them to life.

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 passions to life.

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