Cardrona club

Cardrona Distillery has opened entries to UK bartenders to its inaugural cocktail competition, Cardrona Club.


Bartenders are invited to create a signature cocktail with the Cardrona Distillery product of their choice, highlighting the unique nature of the spirit.

Cardrona’s spirits include the Reid Single Malt Vodka, The Source Pure Cardrona Gin, Rose Rabbit liqueurs (Orange, Elderflower & Butterscotch) and The Cardrona Single Malt Whisky.

Twelve bartenders from 10 regional finals held across the UK and New Zealand will be selected to compete at the Grand Final in Cardrona in New Zealand in September 2022.

In Round 1 of the competition, bartenders are asked to apply via an entry form and post a photo of their cocktail on social media, using the hashtag #CardronaComp. The bar at which the bartender works must stock Cardrona's spirits to qualify.

Twelve bartenders per region (24 in London) will then be chosen in Round 2 to compete in the regional finals, before six bartenders from the UK and six from New Zealand are selected to contest the Cardrona Trophy at the Grand Final in New Zealand in Round 3.

The entry form and more information about qualifying criteria can be found here. Entry to the competition closes March 31st 2022.
