CHOOSE YOUR JOURNEY: COCKTAIL SUBMISSION BRIEF
Our brands are iconic, world leaders in bourbon and the pioneer in Japanese whisky, with deep heritage, passion for quality and legacy.
Create a drink around TRADITION and what that means to you. Whether that be family tradition, cultural traditions, a yearly tradition among friends or even a daily tradition among your bar team to kick start your shift. Traditions can be large or small, but just as meaningful. Tell the story of tradition through flavour and our brands.
Technology today is greatly impacting how people portray their character. In response, The Blend encourages creation of a drink that portrays an individual’s personality. Create a cocktail that unveils/or portrays your inner personality traits, a ‘Cocktail of Character’.
Be loud, proud, quiet, cheeky, bold, adventurous, shy, serious, calm, a joker, a provoker, a lover.
Be you. Authentically you.
Using at least one of the award-winning brands from the Beam Suntory portfolio*, tell us the story of your chosen brief TRADITION or PERSONALITY.
