The 2017 USBG Most Imaginative Bartender Competition (MIB) presented by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE will officially kick off in just under a month, with submissions opening March 15. Established as one of the industry’s most prestigious bartender competitions, the MIB program, now in its 11th year, has scoured North America and the world for the greatest undiscovered talents; traveling to 4 continents and hitting over 30 countries. This March, emerging LA bartenders can once again submit their most imaginative cocktail creations for the chance to compete amongst top LA, San Diego, and Hawaii mixology talents to move onto the North American finals. For the second year in a row, the 12 regional finalists will travel to London – the home of Bombay Sapphire and its new Laverstoke Distillery – to vie for the 2017 North American title.
