For MN Locals Only: 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey Cocktail Competition

Do you fancy yourself a mixologist? If so, here's your chance to shine (and if you're really good, win a trip to Ireland)!

After opening popular Irish pubs – Kieran's Irish Pub, The Local, Cooper and the Liffey – Irishman Kieran Folliard launched 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey in March 2011.

Kieran Folliard, photo credit Beam Suntory2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey has launched a Cocktail Competition open ONLY TO RESIDENTS OF MINNESOTA for a chance to win a 7-day trip to Ireland, hosted by creator Kieran Folliard himself.

With Minnesota as the muse, residents (21+) are asked to create a new cocktail recipe based on local landmarks or Minnesota history. Entries are to be posted on the contest website, including the cocktail recipe, directions to make the drink, photo and a short description of the cocktail's inspiration.

Contest ends December 31, 2018. Click here for official contest rules.

2 GINGERS was created by Kieran, who was inspired by his red-headed (a.k.a. "ginger") mother and aunt. It is double-distilled to retain more of those natural whiskey flavors (most Irish whiskey is notably triple-distilled) and aged for four years in Ireland’s mild climate.

Next some inspiration? Enjoy a signature The Big Ginger® (2 GINGERS plus ginger ale, a wedge of lemon and a wedge of lime in a tall glass filled with ice).
