Brooklyn Gin is offering bars the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the inaugural Bar Convent Brooklyn trade event in June.
Hi-Spirits, UK & Ireland distributor of Brooklyn Gin, will fly seven regional winners to Brooklyn in the USA, with the prizes awarded based on sales and promotion of the premium craft gin.
Bars can win the points-based incentive by collecting the distinctive copper-coloured Brooklyn Gin bottle caps as proof of sale. Additional points will be awarded for social media posts using the hashtag @BROOKLYNGIN, as well as for displays in venues featuring the brand.
Dan Bolton, managing director of Hi-Spirits, said: “Brooklyn Gin has built a strong following amongst bartenders, who appreciate the way its fresh, citrus flavours enhance both classic gin serves and bespoke cocktails.
“Bars now have a huge choice of gins, so with the much-anticipated Bar Convent Brooklyn trade event taking place in the home of Brooklyn Gin in June, this incentive is designed to recognise and reward bars that are supporting the brand. Our seven winning bartenders will enjoy an unforgettable trip and get a feel for the true Brooklyn spirit.”
Points will be awarded on the basis of one point for each Brooklyn Gin bottle cap collected; one point for each social media post using the @BROOKLYNGIN hashtag (maximum three posts a week); five points for each in-venue display produced and photographed (minimum one month display); five points for featuring Brooklyn Gin on the drinks menu (minimum one month).
Winners must be over 21 to comply with Bar Convent Brooklyn entry conditions. The prize runs from 11 June to 14 June, and includes flights, accommodation at the Henry Norman Hotel and tickets to Bar Convent Brooklyn. Full T&Cs can be found at www.hi-spirits.com/terms
Launching in 2018, Bar Convent Brooklyn takes place at the Brooklyn Expo Centre in the New York borough on 12 and 13 June. The event is an extension of the successful Bar Convent Berlin trade show for bar professionals, spotlighting premium brands and a high profile education programme. (www.barconventbrooklyn.com)
