The final, to be held at The Magic Roundabout, one of the cities iconic pop-up sites in London, will feature four venues from across the UK who have been tasked during June and July to promote their twist on the classic Mai Tai cocktail using two expressions of Chairman’s Reserve. Utilising social media, events, Chairman’s Reserve sales and innovative promotional activity, bars and restaurants have been earning a vast amount of points, with the aim of gaining a spot in the final, which can ultimately win a training visit for two to St Lucia as part of the prestige Chairman’s XI programme.

With a secret panel of judges on hand to test out each cocktail, the winning bar will find out on the evening whether they have earnt their place on the plane to St Lucia later in the year.
