As non-alcoholic cocktails are becoming a must on menus; as crafting qualitative alcohol-free creations is a great challenge to take on; as we regularly encounter excellent proposals and we’d like to showcase the talented professionals behind them;
We are thrilled to announce the first edition of the JNPR Cocktail Competition. This first No & Low cocktail competition will bring together professional bartenders from France, Italy, Greece and the United Kingdom.
“As mindsets have now considerably evolved among the bartender community and as the quality of the products improved, the non-alc. segment is facing an exponential growth. We are convinced it is the right time to launch this competition and we are looking forward to witnessing bartenders’ creativity and tasting high level creations.”

The list of semi-finalists selected for each country will then be communicated in late March. The bartenders will compete in semi-finals, which will be organized in April in each country to elect 2 finalist bartenders.
The final will take place in Paris on June 3rd. The jury will notably be made up of Flavio Angiolillo, owner of the 1930 cocktail bar (ranked among the 50 best bars), a journalist, and Valérie de Sutter (founder of JNPR). The 10 finalist bartenders will compete in a series of cocktail-making challenges. Travel and accommodation in Paris will be covered for all finalists.
The reward for the finalist will be: a trip to BCB Berlin in October 2024 (with transport & accommodation covered), participation in the jury for the 2025 edition, and visibility on social media.
As a reminder, this competition is reserved for professional bartenders.
