Bartenders to Battle It out in Azuñia’s Ladies Only Cocktail Competition in Phoenix

Phoenix, Ariz., and Glendora, Calif. – April 5, 2018 – Stay classy, sassy and a little bad assy. Today, Azuñia Tequila launched a quest to find Phoenix’s Best Lady Bartender with a girl-powered cocktail competition. The best female bartenders in Phoenix can compete for the title of Best Lady Bartender of Phoenix, as well as a local “Staycation” Prize Package, in a competition presented by Azuñia Tequila and USBG Phoenix Chapter.

“This competition, like estate-grown Azuñia organic tequila, is for women who believe in quality and balance in life,” said Kailee Asher, Sales Manager, and Mixologist for Azuñia Tequila. “Many in the food and beverage industry work long hours day and night. Azuñia, in conjunction with women-owned Tuck Shop and the Phoenix Bartenders’ Guild, wants to celebrate the efforts of women in the highly competitive and strenuous industry of mixology. Additionally, we want to encourage industry women to find balance in their lives.” Asher concluded.

Azuñia and USBG will accept entries via email between April 3 and April 17. In addition to the cocktail recipe and name, entries must also include one paragraph about the cocktail’s inspiration.

Eight bartenders will be selected from the online submissions to compete in a live bartender competition at Tuck Shop in Phoenix on May 21, 2018. And three winners from the live competition will be selected by a panel of professional female bartenders to win one of three health and wellness-focused prizes, including the grand prize of a “Staycation + Spa” package at a local resort and valued at $1,000.

Competitors will be judged on factors like Flavor, Appearance, Bartender Presentation, and Imagination. Each competitor must make 4 cocktails (3 for judges, 1 for photos) and bring their own glassware, tools and other equipment. Azuñia Tequila will provide product and ice for the live event.

The winner of the Best Lady Bartender of Phoenix competition will be featured in digital content on and Azuñia’s social media profiles.

About Azuñia Tequila

Azuñia is smooth, clean craft tequila with authentic flavor from the local terroir in every sip. It is the exclusive export of Agaveros Unidos de Amatitán and its second-generation, family-owned-and-operated Rancho Miravalle estate, which has created exceptional tequila for over 20 years. Made with 100% pure Weber Blue Agave grown in dedicated fields of the Jalisco Valley, we harvest by hand and roast the organic agave in traditional clay hornos to ensure authenticity and depth of flavor. We then finish with a natural, open-air fermentation process and bottle onsite in small batches using a consistent process to deliver field-to-bottle quality.
