Any questions can be emailed to events@barwars.info and the question and answer will be posted below and is the competitors job to check this page daily to stay updated…

 

Q: Hey brother just a few questions about the rules. So are we making a total of 8 drinks? Also for our exhibition bottles can we us unlabeled captain bottles?
A: Yes, 2 specialty cocktails four times each. 3 for judges and one for camera. If i remember correctly, Captain Morgan bottles have their logo and other elements etched in the glass… so No as “Competitor choice bottles are clear unlabeled bottles for juice & egg whites only if it’s in your recipe for your specialty cocktail. No electrical tape, not tinted glass, no stickers, no distinguishing marks or elements, … “clear unlabeled bottles” only.”

Q: “The only syrups allowed in the competition are Re’al Syrups”… is it ok to use Finest Call Passion Fruit Puree Mix in addition to a Re’al product as it’s labeled as a puree mix, and not a syrup? 

A: Yes.

Q: I know the cocktail must have a Finest Call Single Pressed… would Passion Fruit count for that?

Or if I use Finest call single press lime, could I also use finest call passion fruit in addition in the recipe?

A: Correct, you may use Finest Call Passion Fruit but are still required to use either Finest Call Single Press Lime, Lemon or combination of both in addition.

Q: Do we have to have the actual bottle to film it? If so we have to check around town for it. Can we submit it ON the 27th as long as it’s before, say midnight going into the 28th?

A: It is not required to have the actual bottles in your 30 second commercial but it could help, it all up to your creativity. Yes by midnight on the 27 is correct.

Q: I was looking over the layout and what will be provided and I did not see finest call simple syrup, will there be on site and if not can I bring my own in a clear squirt bottle??

A: No, Finest Call Simple Syrup will not be supplied, No you can not bring your own Simple Syrup in a squirt bottle… but YES you can bring and use Finest Call Simple Syrup if its in your recipe as stated in the rules.

Non-competing spirits in your recipe will be supplied by the competitor and
must be in its original bottle and packaging and can be set to any level.
No other Gin, Rum, syrup or competitive mixer will be allowed.

Homemade ingredients ARE NOT ALLOWED.”

Good luck to all of the competitors!
