When & Where
Speed Rack is a competition created by and for female bartenders.
And, while we're at it, we're going to raise some money to fight breast cancer.
Speed Rack is a national cocktail competition featuring top female bartenders in key cock- tail markets, putting them head to head in round robin style timed and judged challenges. It is the first competition to highlight the up and coming generation of strong women in the spirits industry. 100% of the proceeds from each of the events we produce goes to breast cancer education, prevention and research.
Created and produced by Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero 2012-2013 events will once again be coordinated by Claire Bertin-Lang of CBLLC. Claire is a veteran of the cocktail community coordinating events such as the International Chefs Congress and the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards.
