42BELOW Announce 42 WINNERS

42BELOW have announced the top 42 bartenders who will now progress to the next round. There are 21 Australian and 21 New Zealand finalists, who each demonstrated their ability to create amazing sustainable cocktails. They now have the chance to win a life-changing eco-trip to Bali.

42BELOW Vodka Professor Jacob Briars said: “They’re all winners in our mind, but now, the Top 42 finalists start their journey to become one of 42BELOW’s Top 4 Australian and New Zealand sustainable bartenders.”

The top 42 bartenders will be judged on: –

Sustainability – is it genuinely doing good, through planet-friendly practices?
Creativity – inspiration, visually appealing, name, will it taste delicious?
Popularity – read on…

From now until 31st January 2019, consumers and bartenders alike can vote for their favourite cocktails via the 42BELOW Facebook or Instagram pages, ahead of two Australian and two New Zealand winners being announced on 8 February 2019. To help spur the votes onward and upwards, there are 42 pairs of Norton Point sunnies made from upcycled ocean.

The 42BELOW Sustainable Cocktail Showcase wants to highlight the awesome job bartenders are doing to create great tasting sustainable cocktails but also how they play their part to better the environment. So much trash is churned out that an island of trash five times the size of NZ has accumulated in the Pacific – NOT COOL!
