2019 Cocktail Competition



The 6th NWAF Cocktail Competition

Featuring Casa Noble Tequila

Since 2012, we have been sending one PNW bartender (and the luckiest friend they have) to Mexico for a once-in-a-lifetime trip through tequila country. This year, we are proud to have Casa Noble as our featured spirit for this regional competition. 


The 2019 NWAF Cocktail Competition will be held two weeks before the Fest at Heartwood Provisions, on September 9th at 9PM. 

The Competition is open to the public, and will feature all the finalists. Come cheer on your favorite, or just swing by and have a drink while some of the top bartenders in Seattle duke it out for our grand prize: a boutique, educational tour for two to Mexico with Experience Tequila

Can’t make it? Don’t fret. The winning cocktail will be featured at the Northwest Agave Fest on September 28 at Block 41.

Finalists will be listed here August 30, 2019.
