Returning from its hiatus. The Perfect Blend 2023 is (finally) back!

A cocktail competition like no other…

Most cocktail competitions are ultimately about the drink, the presentation, and the showmanship!? This is about supporting one another, education, career, and self-development.

It’s the perfect blend of competition, growth, & community.

We present…

You heard that right, The Perfect Blend is back, and two (2) lucky bartenders have the chance to WIN a trip of a lifetime with three (3) unique experiences. Firstly, a VIP tour of our very own award-winning Beam Suntory distilleries in Scotland; secondly heading to London to experience the excitement of an industry trade event, connecting with Bartenders from across the globe, and lastly visiting some of the world’s best bars, personally meeting the industry mentors who operate and own them!  A week of education, connection, and exploration, not forgetting a ton of fun!


No matter your level of experience, if you’re brand new to bartending, or been in the industry for a while, we welcome and invite everyone to take part!

If you’ve been behind the bar for less than two (2) years, and are an aspiring bartender, we invite you to enter The Perfect Blend cocktail competition Apprentice Category. 
This category allows and gives space for you to not feel intimidated especially if it’s your first time. 

This can be an incredible opportunity to showcase your skills and passion for the craft among your peers of similar experience. This competition provides a platform for you to challenge yourself and push the boundaries of your creativity whilst learning off industry mentors and the Professional Category competitors, sharing ideas, and being inspired whilst being supported and mentored throughout.
