The official hub page for the UKBG NCC. Full info, latest news and information on entry, rules and eligibility. The hub will be updated regularly as the competition progresses, so check back often!

Bringing together the most talented mixologists and bartenders from across the nation, the 2024 National Cocktail Competition will challenge the UK’s best to demonstrate their skill, nerve and creativity in a breakneck competition to crown the UK’s most talented bartender.

We’re opening the stage to you, giving you the platform to showcase your creative talents and your mixology skills as you compete to be named the UK’s best – and land yourself a spot at the IBA World Cocktail Competition in Madeira this October.

Taking place in London this September, we want to see your innovation and originality take the centre stage as you build fresh, unique recipes to stun our judges and book a spot on the flight to Portugal for the World Final. This year will see you tackle a complex combination of flavours and tastes all centred around our core theme of Asian Fusion.

Think you can take on the competition and come out on top like last year’s winner Matteo Basso?

Sign ups for the competition are open from the 1st July and entries are open to all UK Bartenders Guild members. If you’re not a member already, you can sign up for membership here.

All competition rules and regulations can be found here, and you can click here to submit your entry.

You can also find information about the World Cocktail Competition from the IBA here. Rules and regs will be updated soon.
