Escape to the Grape with EWG Spirits and Wines

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


There’s never been a better time for bartenders to show off their skills and if they’re lucky, they can boost their Frequent Flier points at the same time.

Take Escape to the Grape, the competition run by EWG Spirits & Wine for instance. In its first interactive campaign, the team behind G’Vine grape-based gin and recently launched La Quintinye
Royal Vermouth are inviting six lucky bartenders to win an
exclusive, money-can’t-buy, five-day trip to Cognac.

It’s simple enough to enter: if you’re a bartender looking to top-up your tan in June whilst  visiting the region’s finest grape producers learning all about wine, hanging out with judges Gaz Regan and Philip Duff, and making your own gin based on your journey, all you have to do is share an ‘escape’ that inspired you to create a winning G’Vine gin and tonic. Just log onto, upload two original visuals – either in still or moving form –  of
your dream escape along with the details of the G’Vine and tonic
the location has inspired. And that’s it. The six finalists will
be announced on 16th May.

If you’re not a bartender you can still get involved by voting for your favourite serve. And as a sweetener, there’s for a chance to win
a night out for you and your friends up for grabs. Winners will
be selected at random and announced each Friday on the Escape to Grape Facebook page.

Feeling gin-spired? Then hurry, the closing date for entries is 14th May, announcements will be made on 16th May. Grape stuff!
