Mixologists Nationwide To Compete For Most Imaginative Bartender Title
The 2018 USBG Most Imaginative Bartender Competition (MIB) presented by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has officially kicked off, with submissions open until March 31.
This month, emerging bartenders from across North American can once again submit their most imaginative cocktail creations for the chance to compete amongst the nation’s top mixology talents. Established as one of the industry’s most prestigious bartending competitions, the MIB program, now in its 12th year, has scoured North America and the world for the greatest undiscovered bartenders; traveling to 4 continents and hitting over 30 countries.
For the third year in a row, the 16 regional finalists will travel to London — the home of Bombay Sapphire and its Laverstoke Distillery — to vie for the 2018 North American title. This year’s national winner will be named GQ Magazine’s official “Bartender in Residence,” collaborating on a series of cocktail videos.
