Bartender Magazine’s Bartender of the Year Top 10!
It’s that time of year when we announce the top 10 bartenders in the country! This year’s exam was a hard one as always, and the mystery box mystery round tested all competitors. The judges have sipped and scored, the competitors have sniffed their way through the tasting round, and we now have the ten best bartenders in the country:
In no particular order:
Greg Sanderson, EDV, Melbourne
Charles Ainsbury, Eau de Vie, Sydney
Chris Hysted, The Black Pearl, Melbourne
Daniel Gregory, The Black Pearl, Melbourne
Perryn Collier, Laneway, Brisbane
Ben Blair, Corner House, Sydney
Karl Moore, Laneway, Brisbane
Katherine Waisiel, The Bowery, Brisbane
Evan Stanley, The Black Pearl, Melbourne
Thomas Bartram, Palmer & Co, Sydney
Congratulations to the top 10 — check them out doing their thing Monday 24 at Drinks Fest!
