£1,000 & an all-expenses paid trip for two to Vienna among the prizes for the winner of the new Crystal Head Creative Spirit Competition.
We’ve always had a soft spot for Crystal Head Vodka. In part to our love of the Blues Brothers and therefore the founder of the brand Dan Aykroyd. However it is more than that, the liquid inside lives up to the hype of the bottle it’s housed in and the people who work for the brand have always been fantastic to hang out with.
Now they are encouraging bartenders across the UK to get creative.
They want your drink to be inspired by the Creative Spirit and are encouraging you to be as creative as you want and create a cocktail which showcases why Crystal Head is the perfect canvas for top quality creative drinks. Unsurprisingly you still need to ensure Crystal Head Vodka or Crystal Head Aurora is the main spirit in your recipe (a minimum of 35ml).
Apart from that they are taking the shackles off – homemade ingredients are allowed, no limit on number of ingredients and any style of serve is encouraged.
One thing they would like you to take into account is the zero-additive nature of Crystal Head, only the highest quality ingredients are used and not masked with oils, glycerols or other additives plus of course the purest and cleanest water from Newfoundland. Having met Dan on several occasions now we can tell you he is very keen on this point so it’s worth bearing in mind.
Once you have entered your drink using the form below the European Team from Crystal Head will review all the entries and pick the finalists for the UK.
After the final the winner will be getting themselves £1,000 cash, the UK’s newest Startender crown, a personalised, one-of-a-kind Jeroboam of Crystal Head Vodka, all expenses paid trip to Vienna for 2: flights, a stay in a luxury hotel, dinner with some of the best views of the city, and drinks and cocktails in some of the best bars in the city.
