You heard the news and we’re here to confirm – The House of ANGOSTURA is hosting our 10thAnnual ANGOSTURA®Global Cocktail Challenge! Zone 4 (USA/Canada) is officially open for entries to become the next Global Brand Ambassador for House of ANGOSTURA®. We’re looking for innovative, norm-defying mixologists who are up to the task and can hold their own slinging, swizzling, straining and garnishing alongside the best in the industry.

Finalists in the U.S. and Canada will be flown to Austin, Texas, to compete in the North American Final Competition. And to make an already sweet deal that much sweeter, the winner of the North American Final will be flown to Trinidad, home base and the heart and soul of our brand, to compete in the Global Finals on February 23, 2020. There, they’ll go up against the world’s most elite bartenders for the chance to become next Global Brand Ambassador for House of ANGOSTURA® along with a USD$10,000 cash prize and a two-year contract to represent the House of ANGOSTURA® across the globe.

In this role, the next Global Brand Ambassador will travel the world as a brand expert and representative inspiring bartenders to experiment with and explore the full portfolio of ANGOSTURA®aromatic and orange bitters, our premium rums and Amaro di ANGOSTURA®.

Last year’s winner, Ray Letoa of New Zealand, showcased unmatched skill and creativity with two cocktails that “captured the vibrancy and exuberance of the islands of Trinidad and Tobago and of the House of ANGOSTURA” according to the competition’s head judge, Mike Ryan. His first cocktail, coined “Deliciousness,” incorporated Amaro di ANGOSTURA, while his second, the “Old Flame,” called for Angostura 1824® and two dashes of both ANGOSTURA aromatic bitters and ANGOSTURA orange bitters.
