The Chase Cup at Rock the Farm
The Chase Cup at Rock the Farm
The Chase Cup is back again, pitting bartenders from all over the world. With a cash prize of £2500 and an opportunity to bar tend at the BCB!
However this time the competition has a focus on home-grown, local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. It’ll be great to see what bartenders bring to the table using ingredients local to their markets!
"The Chase Cup is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your talent and compete against top bartenders from all over the world.”
The Chase Cup will take place during the Rock The Farm festival, at the Distillery.
“Rock The Farm is the ultimate hospitality festival! It's the perfect chance for front of house teams to have a great time together outside of work, make new friends, check out emerging talent at the Chase Cup final and enjoy lots of delicious food and cocktails.”
For those that have never had the pleasure of experiencing the Rock The Farm festival it is a truly unique experience. Ultimate hospitality. For hospitality.
“This year we are running the festival in early June which I think is great timing considering how gruelling May can be in hospitality, due to the double bank holiday!"
I actually attended the very first Rock The Farm a long time ago and it was a great couple of days. Tours of the farm and Distillery, chats with the Chase family, great drinks and food with the main event being the Chase Cup, cheering on our own local heroes in the yard, followed by music LATE into the night. A balanced mix of education and entertainment. Over night camping at the farm was a real treat as well, and a special friendship was formed with the multitude of bartenders we met from all over the country.
Since then they have tweaked the competition and festival into what it is today; I even heard whispers of Glamping one year!
