Amaro Montenegro Offers Cash Prizes For Art

By Neat Pour Staff |

There’s nothing bitter about the new campaign from Amaro Montenegro. The OG of Italian liqueurs just announced their latest marketing program, an art contest. Not ‘artist-inspired cocktails’ or ‘craft creativity’. Just, you know, art.

Dubbed ‘Montenegro Made,’ the idea is simple. Entrants are basically asked to recreate the Montenegro bottle in any media they wish. Officially, the contest “challenges artists and fans to think outside-the-box, and shines a light on various artistic mediums in support of the creative community.” So, think Warhol’s Absolut campaign.

Jim Bachor’s take on Montenegro

Three winners will be chosen by panel including Heather Ihn Martin, mosaic craftsman, Jim Bachor, and embroiderer, Sarah Benning. Each winner will receive $2500.

Anyone over 21-years-old (you do not have to work in the industry) can enter here, at Montenegro’s official site. The deadline for applications is September 30, 2020. Winners will be announced on October 14.

Of course’s there’s an official hashtag—#MontenegroMade.

First Sips: FEW Immortal Rye

FEW Straight Rye Whiskey, a (70%rye, 20% corn, 10% malted barley) mash bill, forms the base of the spirit. However, the distiller proofs the barrel-strength rye whiskey down to bottling strength using 8 Immortals tea instead of water. Grown at an altitude of 2000 feet, in the southeastern corner of Guangdong Province, China, the Dancong oolong leaves are a real prize among tea nerds.)

Netflix’s ‘Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood’ Delivers Wiesn Watch

The six part miniseries is evocative of Boardwalk Empire… in turn of the 20th century Germany… with Samoan cannibals thrown in for good measure. The beautifully shot result is at times riveting and others absurdly mediocre (see Samoan cannibals). However, the writers included enough elements of Oktoberfest culture to keep a hophead entertained, even during the lowpoints.
