If you missed out, this is not the end! We’re joining forces with Pernod Ricard in a STIR IT UP Wildcard round to give another bartender their chance to shine at the STIR IT UP final this May. Anyone working in the on-trade is able to enter the Wildcard round by uploading a video or photo of their signature cocktail by 12th April on Instagram using the hashtag #Stiritupwild and tagging @MatthewClarkltd and @PernodricardUK.
It’s one cocktail, one round and one Wildcard winner that will be whisked away to Ireland, hosted by the team behind Jameson Irish Whiskey.
