©Confinement Bartender Contest – Tip your bartender!

Spirits Hunters has decided to try and help by tipping bartenders around the world.

So we thought, it would be soothing to see bartenders come together making whichever cocktail from what they have at home “To Celebrate Life Around the World”.

So welcome to the Spirits Hunters Confinement Bartender Contest – Tip your bartender!


Bartenders around the world send us your video tutorials: serious, cool, fun of your confinement cocktail via our Instagram account. As our Instagram account was hacked, this will allow us to see you again!

(Our new Instagram account @spiritshunters_mag which has been hacked recently will allow us to share and exchange on this subject. Keeping us alert, open to the world and our peers, maybe the star cocktail of tomorrow will emerge from this contest!).
