Caorunn Small Batch Scottish Gin today announced the “Big Apple Cocktail Contest” for all New York City bartenders. Caorunn (pronounced “ka-roon”) is made from a perfectly balanced mix of six traditional ingredients and the infusion of five Celtic botanicals, including Coul Blush Apple.
Since Carounn is being launched in New York City, the brand is challenging mixology masters to create a cocktail that is uniquely “New York” in flavor and character, brings the Coul Blush Apple botanical to life and complements the other 4 Celtic botanicals, which are Rowan Berry, Bog Myrtle, Dandelion and Heather. These authentic Celtic botanicals give Caorunn its fresh and full bodied taste.
The winning libation will be chosen from among five finalist submissions by Gin Master Simon Buley at a New York City launch event in April. The creator will win a trip to Tales of the Cocktail 2011 in New Orleans where the cocktail will be featured as Caorunn’s Big Apple Cocktail of the Year.
The contest beings March 17, 2011 and entries will be accepted via the website at www.caorunngin.com until April 11, 2011. Submissions should include a photo of the cocktail, recipe, the technique to build the drink and a description of the bartender’s inspiration. Please see website for official contest rules.
