There are bar competitions the world over, offering the winner this and that, but there are only a few that really attempt to encompass the spirit of adventure and capture the hearts of bartenders.

The latest one to be launched aimed at our brethren behind the stick comes from Diageo’s island flagship Talisker.

The Skye malt is offering one lucky bartender the opportunity to win the job of a lifetime; to host the wildest bar in the world.
The successful applicant will embark on an all expenses elemental adventure to La Gomera, in the Canary Islands, where they will run the Talisker Wilderness Bar – hidden in a secret location, only accessible by sea.

The new competition – launching on Talisker’s Instagram page – asks bartenders to showcase their inner wild spirit and love of the sea through an elemental Talisker serve of their own creation.

The team suggest that examples of this might include: serving the drink in a Wilderness location, foraging for wild and natural ingredients, or displaying their Wild Spirit personality through the creation process.

The winning bartender will host the Talisker Wilderness Bar from the 9-12th December 2019, on the remote island; ringed by volcanic cliffs and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean.

The Talisker Wilderness Bar will also provide an exclusive vantage point to celebrate the start of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic challenge – a zero-emission ocean rowing race that takes participating teams and individuals more than 3000 miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands, to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour in Antigua. Talisker celebrates its sixth consecutive year as title sponsor of the race.

The competition runs until 10 November 2019. No qualifications are needed, but bar expertise is required, and all entrants must be 25 years old and above. Application details, including terms and conditions, can be found on Talisker’s Instagram channel @talisker.
