Irish Craft Cocktail Awards 2017 Long List Announcement

The long list was compiled from the votes of the general public during our open voting round that closed last week. We now turn this list over to our Industry panel of voters to whittle it down to a shortlist of nominees, 6 bars for each category (12 for best bartender) and eventually choose the winner of each.

Appearing on this long list is in itself a fantastic achievement, so well done! It means your friends and customers have cared enough about what you do to nominate you for an Irish Craft Cocktail Award. It gives you or your bar an opportunity to be selected by the industry panel to be nominated for our awards night celebration.

But first, if your bar is listed, we will be contacting you in the next day or two to to let you know the next steps and what we need from you. So keep an eye on your bars official email account and Facebook page.

If you don’t hear from us please reach out and let us know via Facebook messenger or via email to irishcraftcocktailawards@gmail.com

Best of luck to everyone!!
