Schweppes Search for Australia’s Best G&T

Can you create Australia's Best G&T?

The search for Australia’s best G&T is kicking off this month! Schweppes wants bartenders to take the classic G&T and add 1 part creativity, 1 part presentation and 1 part story, to make something not quite old and not quite new, but really quite incredible: Australia’s best G&T.

Using Schweppes Tonic Water as the key ingredient (at least 100ml), the rest has been up to the entrant in this all new competition. Schweppes knows that all bartenders can pour a great G&T – with that refreshing bittersweet blast and a good dash of ‘Schweppervescence’. But this time they’re looking for looking for something more.

The top five entrants will be flown to Sydney for a live final at Sydney Barshow. The finalists will be hosted on stage by Philip Duff (the head judge for the comp) as they create their finalist entry live for the judging panel.  The bartender that creates Australia’s best G&T will win a trip valued at $10,000 to London to attend the 2011 London Bar Show.

Entries are open now until 18 July 2010. Visit to enter.

  1. I’m absolutely thrilled to be judging this contest – no-other liquor category can boast of a drink quite so iconic as the G&T, and I believe this the Schweppes Search will demand as much restraint and subtlety as it will creativity, from what I consider to be the most advanced nation of mixologists in the world!

  2. “…from what I consider to be the most advanced nation of mixologists in the world!”

    Nice one.

  3. put black light bulbs in the lamps, and they will become “glow in the dark” G&Ts! disco, disco disco.
