Mackintosh Challenge 2020

Mackintosh Challenge 2020

18th March 2020

We want to say thank you to those of you who have supported us, from promoting our gin on your social media accounts, to blogging about us, telling people about us, singing about us, for being a ginpal and of course for buying a bottle from us.

We’re looking for a cocktail that works well using any expression from the Mackintosh Gin range, looks appealing and is something that can be easily recreated by other home bartenders & mixologists. It can be a cocktail you have created, or it can be an old classic that you enjoy making with Mackintosh Gin.

Entrants are to submit a photo of their Mackintosh Gin cocktail with a few words as to why they made the cocktail and the inspiration behind it. Our younger team members will pick 12 cocktails between them that they would like to see our bartending pals (three of them) make. The bartender panel will make the cocktails and decide on the winner. Multiple entry is permitted, bonus points can also be awarded.

The winner will win a mixed case of Mackintosh Gin worth £250.

How to Enter
We want you to create a cocktail using at least 25ml of Mackintosh Gin, that can be replicated by other home bartenders & mixologists with ingredients that are easy to source or make. If you use any homemade ingredients you must detail the recipe and method.

Bonus points will be awarded for the following:

1. Posting your cocktail on social media with the hashtag #mackintoshchallenge
2. Leaving feedback on our Mackintosh Gin Facebook page.

Please read the terms and conditions of the completion and then complete the Mackintosh Challenge Entry Form which can be found via the following link: to submit your entry. We will need your drinks specifications, recipe if using home-made ingredients, the name of your cocktail, inspiration/story behind your entry and an image of your creation. If you don’t have access to a printer and can’t edit the document, then typed text in the email will suffice.

The closing date for entry is Sunday 14thJune 2020.

The younger team members from Mackintosh Gin will select 12 cocktails to be put forward to our bartending panel. The panel will then make the cocktails as per your recipe/instructions and will decide on the winner.
