Double Dutch invites all Bar Tenders across the UK to take part in our cocktail competition of 2019! The winner will receive a trip for two to Amsterdam including a 4* central hotel and travel.

The qualifying round will take place in one of your local bars and will be between 5th August – 7th September 2019. It will be judged by the co-founders of Double Dutch, Joyce and Raissa de Haas.

The final will be held in London on September 25th and will be judged by Joyce and Raissa as well as a mystery celebrity judge. Read on for more information about entry requirements and how to enter.

Show us how you would use Double Dutch in your travels around the world and create a cocktail for your favourite country – whether it’s a cocktail for carnival, an iced pour for Iceland or a Spanish sensation, show us how adding a little Dutch transforms your drinks journey’

Minimum Double Dutch in the drink: 100ml

‘Tonic water used to be medicinal, now it is a main ingredient in the most refreshing drinks. Double Dutch are passionate believers in the importance of flavour – show us how you think the flavour of tonic will continue to evolve with your best cocktail of the future.’
