The large crowd that had gathered to witness the spectacle were treated to eight inspiring presentations from bartenders representing France, New Zealand, Lebanon, China, South Africa, Singapore, Ireland and Greece.


The winner at the end of the night was Frank Didieu from France. Didieu won with his Bacardi Legacy cocktail, Le Latin, a mix of sugar, lemon juice, white wine, and a hint of olive brine, shaken and served up and garnished with an olive.

Dideu was named the winner after the final eight was reduced to the top three, which included New Zealand’s Barney Toy and his drink The Pan Am Cocktail, and Jad Ballout from Lebanon with his drink El Mediterraneo.
