Fifteen of America's greatest bartenders arrived in San Diego in hopes of delivering their World Class cocktails to prestigious judges, capturing the essence of Challenge. The impeccable talent, preparation and personal story was awe-inspiring to say the least, but only one heads to Mexico City!
As the World Class National Finalists put the final touches on the recipes and presentations, we asked them to weigh in on their experiences throughout the program. Take a few moments to get to know these top notch bartenders!
Congratulations to our World Class sponsored by Diageo National Finalists! Please meet the fifteen competitors who have earned their way to the National Final.
It’s difficult to describe the work that went into preparing for these challenges. Most of them started in a small notebook as a series of stream-of-consciousness scribbles. They evolved into actual cocktails, but more so turned into these stories I wanted to tell.
Thank you for your Southern Hospitality and generosity, Southern Regional Conference sponsors!!
