Win a trip to Mauritius!
Pink Pigeon Rum premium Mauritian Rum has announced its first ever international cocktail competition, with the entry deadline on 31st January 2013. And all you need to do is create two Pink Pigeon drinks:
- A tiki or punch
- A libation that will complement the vanilla in the rum
The 10 best entries to go through to the UK heat in London, where competitors will prepare both their drinks for an expert panel of judges.
Pink Pigeon is the premium Mauritian Rum handcrafted on the Medine Sugar Estate on the tropical island of Mauritius – the jewel of the Indian Ocean. Although complex in flavour, Pink Pigeon is easy to drink, distilled with the purest of spirit and the addition of the world's finest natural vanilla.
It is named after a pigeon that, like the rum, is only to found on Mauritius. Once endangered, this stunning pink quirk of nature, now flourishes again in the island's lush fauna. In flight it symbolises peace, freedom and harmony, and, along with its rarity, shares these qualities with the brand.
TheFloatingRumShack.com wrote about Pink Pigeon back in August 2011 (click here to read the article) and since then we featured a drink that our friends at Wax Jambu had on their menu last valentine’s day. The Pink Pigeon YouTube channel features quite a few new cocktails created by Ryan Chetiyawardana.
