The weekly competition time period will be between Monday 12am and Sunday 11:59pm.

The final winner will be selected from the 8 weekly winners via a judging panel consisting of judges selected by Mr Black Spirits. Each cocktail will receive a combined score based on taste, presentation, originality and creativity. The cocktail that receives the highest combined score from the judging panel will be announced the winner of the grand prize.

Note, this is a game of skill only and chance plays no part in determining the winners.

The judge’s decision is final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.
