We are excited to have Sembo Amirpour as a WORLD CLASS Brand Ambassador this year again. Sembo brings extensive experience in mixology and the highest level of motivation – truly embodying the WORLD CLASS spirit.

Among his various competition successes, his recognition as the "WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year 2019 Germany" stands out. Winning this prestigious title marked the pinnacle of Sembo's active career as a bartender. In 2016, Sembo also achieved notable success by opening his bar, "The Old Jacob," in Bonn, immediately securing a spot in the Top 10 for "New Bar of the Year".

Following these personal achievements, Sembo now aims to share his knowledge and experiences with fellow bartenders, act as a mentor for younger talents, and provide his esteemed colleagues with a peer for discussion. Having won WORLD CLASS 2019 for Germany, he gained insights into processes, structures, and intentions that will aid him in fulfilling his role as a Brand Ambassador, guiding you effectively on your WORLD CLASS journey.
