DE KUYPER BAR FIGHT COMES TO SAINT LUCIA!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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. The third place winner will get a trophy as well as EC$300 with a few bottles of De Kuyper going to the bar.
