Mediterranean Inspirations is walking away from the formal competition format. We firmly believe that there is so many other ways to share and enjoy once you reach Vila Mare in Ibiza. You will be part of our unique way of sharing values, of connecting with new people and improving your skills, whilst spending quality time with some of the most relevant gastronomic and liquid geeks of so many different areas of expertise.
Search for your unique inspiration from the core values of the “Mare Nostrum” and express your inspiration into a liquid offering (Cocktail).
Introduce yourself on the www.mediterraneaninspirations.com microsite along with your recipe for your Mare Nostrum cocktail. Remember that it must a be low alcohol (35 ml Gin Mare max) libation, no more than 6 ingredients and displaying a distinct and recognisable Gin Mare profile.
If you qualify for the national finals you will then be asked to present your Mediterranean Gin & Tonic drink (we will contact you to let you know).
Should you classify for the international final, we will set you one last challenge; you will have to prepare the perfect drink for your Gastrobartender challenge in the global finals in September at Vila Mare Ibiza.

Gin Mare will make the following items available for all competitors in the International Final in Ibiza:
Should a contestant need to use a specific item of equipment not considered to be part of a professional bar kit, they will have to bring it with them.
For the International Final in Ibiza, the organisation will TRY to provide some of the fresh ingredients provided they are requested with ONE WEEK’S notice. We recommend the finalists bring their own liqueurs, syrups, or other specific requirements, as it can be difficult to find some elements in Ibiza.
For the International Final in Ibiza the organization will provide flights with 1 piece of checked in luggage allowing them to bring as many fresh ingredients or liquids as necessary.
