PINK YOUR DRINK is for WOMEN and by WOMEN.
Each year during the month of October, Rhuby holds an all-female cocktail competition in addition to many other activities in order to raise awareness and funds to the Pink Ribbon.
The competition was introduced in 2012 during the London Cocktail Week with competing bartenders from across the UK, in partnership with Raymond Blanc. In the judging panel the 2 founders of Speed-Rack/president of LUPEC NY - Ivy Mix and Lynette Marrero, Chief Editor of Bar Magazine UK, the founder of Rhuby and Solveig Sommarström - one of the leading female master distillers world-wide.
