Competition

Entries now open for the Rémy Martin Bartender Talent Academy

We’re inviting all South African-based bartenders to enter the Rémy Martin BTA to stand a chance to compete in the global final in Cognac, France in 2022.

It’s the 100th anniversary of the iconic Sidecar cocktail. In celebration of this special occasion, The Rémy Martin Bartender Talent Academy is launching a local challenge in order to find the best twisted Sidecar recipe in the country!

THE CONTEST

This competition is based on your talents and ability to use them as a source of inspiration to create your twisted Sidecar cocktail. There are 3 tests that’ll prove your cocktail making skills:

STORYTELLING: CREATE A STORY AROUND YOUR COCKTAIL

It’s time to put on a show. The jury will evaluate your ability to tell your story and to make them dream, but they’ll also be looking at how well you can promote the values and history of Rémy Martin within the creation of your cocktail. Don’t forget to connect your creation to one of your very own talents.

MAKING: create YOUR COCKTAIL LIKE AN ARTIST would

Both the presentation of your cocktail and your technical skills will be judged. The judges will be looking at the set-up to the serving, cocktail aesthetic, style, precision and technique.

TASTING: MAKE IT TASTE PERFECT

The judges will evaluate the aromatic balance and appeal of your creation. They will evaluate the intensity of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal in your recipe. Think harmony and taste.
