Speed Rack Co-Founder, Lynnette Marrero, shares, “I am very excited and proud to bring the Speed Rack competition to my home country of Puerto Rico. Ivy and I started this project in 2011, and seeing it expand around the world is an achievement I’m very proud of. I can’t wait to see what the women of Puerto Rico bring to this competition.”
“For us it is extremely important to give visibility and recognize all the women of value who strive and predominate in the cocktail industry. In our walk of what has been PRCW we have met countless outstanding women, extremely talented, creative and passionate. Without a doubt, the industry would not be what it is today without a woman like Ada Colemn, Lynnette Marrero and Julie Reiner. We are very excited to be able to bring this competition to celebrate and expose all the women who give their all behind the cocktail bars of Puerto Rico and we are even more happy to know that we contribute to the advancement of breast cancer research,” explains Deliana Olmo, Co-Founder of PRCW.
Speed Rack is known worldwide as the first exclusive speed cocktail competition for anyone who identifies as a woman and was created by two pioneers in the industry, Lynnette Marrero and Ivy Mix, both bartenders born in the United States.
Women interested in participating can register here. As a general criterion, participants must be bartenders working at least two shifts, be passionate about cocktails, and have a genuine desire to be part of a strong community of women who support each other.
