Welcome To The New Malt Order Bartender Competition

How It Works

Our city heritage encourages us to think differently from other malts. With a community of maverick bartenders that are shaking up the world of single malt, we’re on the hunt for the next generation to join our bartender revolution.

We’re looking for bartenders across the world to experiment with Auchentoshan and create a whisky cocktail that showcases their city. Whether that's ingredients from your hometown or a serve that tells a local story, we're looking for creative cocktails that enhance the smooth flavours of Auchentoshan single malt whisky.

The Prize

Some of the world’s most innovative bartenders from across the world will meet in Glasgow for a true immersion into Auchentoshan.

Across a week-long experience, our bartender competition winners will work with Master Blender Ron Welsh to create their own unique expression of single malt whisky. Made by bartenders, for bartenders, your name will forever appear on a bottle of whisky that you personally helped craft.

The Brief

We’re looking for creative cocktails that represent your city. Our Glasgow heritage means we’ve always been inspired by the changing landscape of our city and thrived on the creativity of the people around us.

Whether you complete the form below or enter our cocktail competition via Instagram, there’s a few things to consider:

  • Your cocktail should have a maximum of 5 ingredients, including garnish
  • Give your cocktail a name and let us know how your city inspired you
  • If entering via social, don’t forget to tag @theauchentoshan and the bar you work in within your image. Also include the hashtag #newmaltorder so we can track your entry.

Next Steps

Should you make the shortlist, you'll be invited to present your cocktail at an event near you. Our judges will score your cocktail on originality, flavour and story.

From there, our semi-finalists will come together again for a live national final. Here you will make two cocktails: one inspired by your city and one inspired by something you love or have learned about Auchentoshan. Each will be scored on the same criteria as the semi-finals, with timing and presentation also being taken into consideration.

Our final winners will ultimately meet in Glasgow in September for a true immersion into Auchentoshan to create their own unique expression of single malt whisky.
