The Auchentoschan Switch

Have you ever dreamt about switching jobs for a week? Taking a spot behind the rail of a legendary bar an ocean away and immersing yourself in its culture? Perhaps you can, if you are a bartender in the U.S. or the U.K.
Auchentoshan Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the only triple-distilled Scottish single malt, has launched a bartender talent search to find two outstanding barkeeps in the U.S. and the U.K. ready to switch places and switch countries for two weeks. Presenting The Auchentoshan Switch .

The road to get there will be exactly the same in each country. First, bartenders must enter a video of themselves making a homemade lemonade and an Old Fashioned with Auchentoshan Three Wood. Next, 20 semi-finalists will travel to Las Vegas (and London in the U.K.) to enter the showdown hosted by United States Bartenders' Guild (USBG) where the top bartender will be named.

Auchentoshan has partnered with two of the most outstanding bars in each ountry to act as the host bars for the final two bartenders in New York and London.

The Auchentoshan Switch is open to all bartenders in the U.S. and U.K. (see terms & conditions for complete information).  Bartenders can enter their videos from July 1 to August 31 at www.auchentoshan.com/switch. The Las Vegas and London showdown will take place in October 2011 and the actual switch will take place in early 2012.
