Want to win a trip to Kentucky and New York to visit some of the world’s best Bars?


One week to go — that’s 7 days, or 168 hours!

The Perfect Blend cocktail competition – another year in the making — who will take the title for 2017?

Returning for its second year, with a new challenge and an exciting new prize. And they are including our New Zealand neighbours as well!

Craft The Perfect Blend that captivates and inspires, entices and satisfies. Avoid the trends. Forget the past. Set new standards. Push yourself to try new things. Experiment, break the rules and help craft new ones. A chance to prove yourself against the best: your peers, your rivals, they are your motivation. The challenge awaits.

With just 7 days to go – it’s time to get down to business.


It’s time to master your craft, creating your signature concoction using the Whiskies of the World from the Beam Suntory portfolio.

Entries open September 21st, and close November 21st.

Entry is simple, log on to www.the-blend.com.au.


Choose your entry category, Apprentice or Professional (2 years or less for Apprentice, and professional 2 years or more in the industry.)

Craft your perfect blend using Whiskies of the World from the Beam Suntory portfolio. Then submit! Simple.

The format consists of State Finals whereby each category has a winner. Then a national final, consisting of 12 finalists, which will be held in a secret location ( think mini holiday with a rad crew ) – and here we will announce the category winners where two lucky bartenders will win the major prize!

The major prize: a winner from each category will travel across the globe to the home of Bourbon, Kentucky visiting the distilleries Maker’s Mark and Jim beam — meeting the master distillers, then receive the VIP treatment, heading to New York to party like a rockstar and visit some of the world’s best bars!

And the winners will carry the legacy as mentors for future master blenders. So get creating — head to The Blend website to take part.
