Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition
Established in 2006, BACARDÍ Legacy rewards those who create simple but great tasting drinks that can be easily replicated by both bartenders and consumers around the world. The judges are looking for true ‘Legacy’ cocktails to join the ranks of Bacardi classics such as the Cuba Libre, Daiquiri and Mojito, rather than one-off complex, unreplicable “competition drinks”. They're largely simple drinks, easy to make, appealing to consumers, they're comprised of simple combinations of accessible ingredients assembled in the perfect ratios. Those talented enough to be considered for the competition go through a series of gruelling national competitions followed by a 3 month period during which to promote their cocktail and prove its Legacy potential before presenting their cocktail in the Bacardi Legacy Global Final, judged by some of the industry's leading lights. Whether the winner is a savvy mixologist with years of experience and a strong networker within the industry, or someone looking for a mentor and launch pad to drive their bartending career forwards, BACARDÍ Legacy is a nurturing competition. Legacy takes the winner and gives them year-long support and helps embed their cocktail as a true legacy.
