€4,500 & Global Travel – Gin Mare Mediterranean Inspirations

There is a lot more than a trip to Ibiza up for grabs at this years Gin Mare Mediterranean Inspirations competition.

The focus on our first shout out about this years Mediterranean Inspirations was on the trip to Ibiza the UK we victor will received. We have been on that trip a few times and it is definitely worth an entry into the comp on it’s own. However there is more than that on offer.Gin Mare

When you (assuming you win the UK final of course) are over in Ibiza there is plenty of drinking, eating and general partying going on however the big event is the global final of the comp. You will be representing the UK and you’ll be in with a shout of picking up the grand prize and it’s a doozy.

  • €4,500 first prize (that’s over £3,200 in real money)
  • Opportunity to travel the globe representing Gin Mare for the following year
  • Massive bragging rights worldwide
  • The honour of being the first ever UK winner

Yep you read that right, despite having some exceptionally talented bartenders in the final over the past few years in the form of Dee Ann Quinones, Ali Reynolds and Russell Downie, the UK has never brought back the trophy.

So it is time. Time for you to step and get involved.


This year the heats and final will be taking place at the Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch between 19th – 22nd May. This means if you are based outside London there are even more reasons to enter the competition as Gin Mare will be paying for your travel down and a nights accommodation at the Hoxton Hotel plus a drink or two.

For those of you in London there is a big party there on Thursday 21st May for bar industry folks with Gin & Tonics alongside some special Gin Mare cocktails kicking off at 7pm.

So if you fancy a trip to Ibiza, €4,500, plenty of travel, a lot of fun and adventures and the ability to tell Ali you are better than him every time you see him, then head here and get your entry in before the deadline of May 1st (that is not code for enter 3 minutes before the deadline by the way!!).

We’ll see you there.
