We invite you to unleash your creativity and submit your groundbreaking sustainable bar initiatives, ushering in a new era of eco-friendly mixology.
The Torres Brandy Zero Challenge is not just any competition; it's the inaugural international showdown to honor the world's most sustainable cocktail bar project. Join the ranks of visionaries like Barcelona's award-winning Paradiso, which secured the top spot in the first year with their sustainable concept and the remarkable Paradiso Waste Lab now springing to life!
In the second year of this extraordinary opportunity, we've crossed the Atlantic to bring it to America! The doors are now wide open for you to share your ingenious project, showcasing how you'd set up and run a sustainable bar that sets new standards in the industry.
The journey begins with the selection of the four top-scoring applicants, who will earn their ticket to the National Final in the heart of New York in Winter 2024. The champion of the National Final will then embark on an incredible adventure representing the United States in the Global Final taking place in Barcelona, Spain from March 19-22, 2024. There, they'll compete against ten other nations, vying for the title of Torres Brandy Zero Challenge International Champion and the realization of their sustainable bar dream!
At TORRES BRANDY, we're taking our commitment to the environment to the next level within one of the spirits industry's most crucial channels. This is not merely a competition; it's a global movement aimed at reshaping the mindset of the cocktail bar world. Join us in this exciting endeavor, and let's craft a sustainable future for the world of mixology!
