The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Are you the best bar­tender or mixol­o­gist in your league? Do you love a chal­lenge? Are you ready to make your tal­ents known in­ter­na­tion­ally?

Peter & Com­pany Ltd. in­tro­duces and hosts St. Lu­cia’s first ever De Kuyper Bar Fight - a two-part con­test di­rected at bar­tenders from all over Saint Lu­cia to show­case via video their cre­ative bar­tend­ing skills.

The De Kuyper com­pany is in the busi­ness of man­u­fac­tur­ing and mar­ket­ing dis­tilled spir­its and liqueurs with pop­u­lar flavours such Amaretto, Triple Sec and Crème de Men­the, used in mak­ing some of the world’s more de­lec­ta­ble cock­tails.

For the first leg, lo­cal bar­tenders will be posed with the chal­lenge of us­ing a de­li­cious De Kuyper flavour which they will re­ceive once reg­is­tered to cre­ate a cock­tail. They must then make a video of them­selves cre­at­ing an orig­i­nal, sig­na­ture cock­tail with a one-of-a-kind name and email it to the or­ga­niz­ers. It is rec­om­mended that par­tic­i­pants use ei­ther Drop­box or We­trans­fer and email to ger­­rieux@thegel­ Videos can also be posted at www.face­book. com/ASip­inPar­adise. Dead­line for sub­mis­sion of all videos is Oc­to­ber 16th, 2015.

De Kuyper will choose the top fi­nal­ists af­ter which vot­ing for Saint Lu­cia’s top De Kuyper Cock­tail Cham­pion will open up to the public for a week, be­gin­ning Oc­to­ber 17th. Fans will de­cide on the most in­ge­nious cock­tail video and the win­ner will be an­nounced by De Kuyper of­fi­cials as “Born to Dis­til Mixol­o­gist,” on Oc­to­ber 27th.

For the sec­ond leg the De Kuyper A Team will visit bars around the is­land in what is called the De Kuyper Mix Master Cham­pi­ons. Bar­tenders at each lo­ca­tion will be posed with the chal­lenge of cre­at­ing spe­cial cock­tails us­ing De Kuyper. On the night, there will be sam­plings and spe­cials on cock­tails fea­tur­ing prod­ucts such as Grants Scotch Whisky, Jim Beam, Stone’s Ginger Wine, Bro­gans Ir­ish Cream, Bar­ton’s Vodka, Banks Beer, El Do­rado from Peter & Com­pany Ltd.

The win­ner of the up­loaded video will re­ceive EC$1,500 along with a tro­phy, with the bar owner re­ceiv­ing a De Kuyper ham­per. The sec­ond place win­ner gets a tro­phy and EC$500 while a ½ case of De Kuyper prod­ucts goes to the bar owner.
