‘Originals’ Cocktail Competition

Our ‘Originals’ Cocktail Competition sets out to shine a light on the creative talent and style of hospitality that exists within Adelaide’s thriving food and drink culture.

Never before has it been more important to acknowledge and support our city’s vibrant bar scene.

A $5000 cash prize is up for grabs for the winning bartender, plus 10L of Adelaide Gin for their workplace. Second and third place bartenders will win cash prizes of $1000 and $500 respectively.
