The event will take place at Skal, 5429 Ballard Ave NW in Ballard, WA on Tuesday, October 22nd from 4:00pm - 8:00pm. 

We will be selecting 5 original cocktail recipe submissions to compete against one another for a chance to win a trip to Reykjavik for Iceland Airwaves. Round-trip ticket from Seattle to Reykjavik on Icelandair, accomodations, and an Airwaves festival pass are included in the prize. We will leave from Seattle on Nov. 6th, 2019 and fly back on the 10th. You must have a current and valid passport to participate.

Submissions are due no later than 11:59pm on Sunday October 13th.

Eligibility requirements: Your bar or restaurant must have purchased Brennivin (or Opal) within the last 90 days from the submission deadline and your cocktail must include no less than 1 oz of Brennivin.

Feel free to use any homemade tinctures or syrups that you like. Be prepared to bring enough product, homemade ingredients, garnishes, or otherwise to produce 4 cocktails at the competition. You may bring your own bar tools and glassware if you like or use what is provided at the bar. All Brennivin products will be provided for you at the competition.

A panel of 3 judges and the audience will make their decisions based on the following criteria:

1. Cocktail Quality/Balance

2. Appearance

3. Story behind your cocktail and how it relates to Brennivin, or even Iceland itself (here's a hint to get you started)

4. Presentation Skills

5. Cleanliness/Hospitality

We are excited to see what you mix up!
