Silver Circle Aquavit - Signature Cocktail Competition

Silver Circle Aquavit Cocktail Competition

Distilled with caraway, fennel, raspberry, lemon and rye, Silver Circle Aquavit is a modern, versatile version of Scandinavia’s most famous spirit and the first aquavit to be produced in Wales. As a botanical spirit, Silver Circle Aquavit makes for an excellent cocktail ingredient. It is also delicious when sipped straight with food, Scandinavian style.

We’re looking for a delicious cocktail which will become the Silver Circle Aquavit signature serve. Something properly awesome!


RULES & CRITERIA:

There is no restrictive theme, we only ask that you draw your inspiration from the aquavit itself and stick to the following rules.

  1. Recipe entries must contain a minimum of 25ml Silver Circle Aquavit.
  2. Showcase your creativity and skill but make sure all homemade ingredients can be easily replicated ie. so they can be made at home and/or on a large scale.
  3. Cocktails submitted must have been created for this competition and not feature on any other menu.
  4. All entries must include your inspiration behind the cocktail. We’re not looking for essays, just something that will help us plug into your creative mind! Roughly 100 words will be fine.
  5. Must be delicious!
