The Perfect Blend Regional finals are back!


This year we had just over 400 entries across the nation including NZ.

Bartenders were invited to enter The Perfect Blend cocktail competition selecting either ‘Minimal waste – maximum taste’ or ‘That moment in time…’ as their creative inspiration. Expressing what their interpretation was through their signature creations using a selection of award-winning liquids from the Beam Suntory portfolio.

Each bartender celebrates World Bartender Day ( Feb 24th) in their unique way sharing their creations with guests of their venues. Head to to see our finalists and what’s happening in your area. This year we begin celebrations on 10th Feb so make sure you support your fellow industry comrades and head down to one of their venues.

But back to the point of the article… YOU are invited to witness an evening of awe-inspiring talent as our finalists go head to head in their respective categories (Apprentice and Professional) presenting their original cocktails at the live event of the REGIONAL FINALS.

The regional finals kick off within a few short weeks in Melbourne this time… then we tour the country.

Don’t miss out on the action. Bourbon and banter provided.

RSVP is a must. Head to for your regional finals. Entry is free. But RSVP ESSENTIAL.
