If you’ve been dreaming about traveling the world and drinking gin (who hasn’t?), stop everything you’re doing because the perfect job just opened up.
Gin behemoth Bombay Sapphire has teamed up with Mr. Fogg’s, a group of Victorian-themed bars and restaurants in London, to offer one lucky winner and their companion a chance to travel around the world for 80 days. The excursion is inspired by the Jules Verne novel “Around the World in 80 Days,” with a bit of a boozy emphasis, of course.
While you’ll be doing a lot of gin drinking and sightseeing, you’ll also do a fair amount of work, too. You’ll be tasked with documenting the journey on social media and writing a blog, in addition to collecting herbs, botanicals and spices to help create a new limited-edition cocktail. The already-named Around the World cocktail will then be featured at a new Mr. Fogg’s bar.
The trip is all expenses paid, in addition to spending money, and estimates put its value at more than $10,000. While traveling from “Mumbai to Hong Kong, Tokyo to San Francisco, [and] New York to Lisbon,” the lucky duo can expect “once-in-a-lifetime experiences” from Bombay Sapphire ambassadors in different countries, including nights out at some of the world’s best bars.
Ideal candidates have a strong social media presence, good photography skills and a “strong brand awareness” of both Mr. Fogg’s and Bombay Sapphire. Better hurry, though, the application is due August 27.
