Absolut Invite 2016 brings the world’s best bar teams to Stockholm.

We’ve been searching high and low, in fancy hotels, independent bars and everywhere  between to find the brightest and most exciting bar teams from around the world. 

Yep, Absolut Invite is back for its sixth year. But this time our mission isn’t just to find the finest rockstar bartender in the world. Individual excellence just isn’t enough. We believe a committed creative team is the key to any successful bar, so we want to celebrate all of the people that make it possible. Which is why, this year, we’ve invited teams made up of two bartenders to enter the competition together. 

Absolut Invite 2016 started with jaw-droppingly skilled bartending teams from 15 different countries battling it out in their home country. With an emphasis on speed, skill and the ability to work under pressure, the first round of the competition was not for the faint-hearted.

The world comes to Sweden
The winning team from each country will head over on an intense 4-day trip beginning in our home of Ahus, Sweden and ending in Stockholm. And come midnight on the 14th of June (after all the shaking, straining, muddling and infusing) we’ll have our winners crowned and ready to jet set on to the party island of Ibiza for a 3 day #AbsolutNights Experience.
