Weed Cellars teamed up with Chilled to present a cocktail competition with the chance to win up to $3,000.

We are inviting bartenders to enter the Don’t Waste This Cocktail Competition.

Weed Cellars is challenging those who enter to develop a cocktail using their Weed Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Weed Cellars Prosecco, and Weed Cellars Prosecco Rosé. The judges will choose four winners, two from each category – Bourbon and Bubbly.

Country singer Gary Allan will be judging the contest with Mark Weaver, who has been in the alcohol business for over 30 years, Natasha Swords, C.M.O. at Weed Cellars, and Wendy Hodges, Chilled 100 Director.

The competition was inspired by Allan’s country song, Waste of a Whiskey Drink, which features their Weed Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Ready to enter? WEED like you to enter your cocktail now.

Here is some inspiration from the entries.
