WORLD CLASS BARTENDER OF THE YEAR FINAL 6 ANNOUNCED
After three days of gruelling challenges, only six competitors remain.
Another nail-biting day in Miami. The top 12 finalists battled it out against the clock to perfect the American Classics. This challenge saw the contestants pushed to their limit, as they each prepped and delivered drinks under an unforgiving time limit of just ten minutes.
Competition was tight but in the end the judges narrowed it down to six final competitors. Congratulations to the six shortlisted finalists:
Dries Botty, Belgium
Adrián Michalčík, Czech Republic
Jonas Andersen, Denmark
Jennifer Le Nechet, France
Ryu Fujii, Japan
Nick Wu, Taiwan
The top six each now have just 24 hours to create and conceptualise a bespoke pop-up bar in Miami Shakedown, the final challenge of the competition. There the finalists will serve the most important cocktails of their lives and the eagerly anticipated announcement will finally be made. Not long until we will find out who will be crowned World Class Bartender of the Year 2016!
