Voting in Bartender Magazine’s biennial Most Influential List sponsored by Angostura Aromatic Bitters is now open — click here to cast your votes.

Held every two years, this is the original list of the who’s who of the Australian bar industry.Voting is open between the 1st and the 30th of June 2015.

This year’s Most Influential List is sponsored by the very influential Angostura Aromatic Bitters, courtesy of the good folks at island2island.

You can nominate up to 5 people in order (1 to 5 below) and we will tally up these votes to come up with the Top 100 Most Influential, published in Australian Bartender in August.


We are looking for people from all walks of the Australian bar industry from owners to designers, bartenders to brand managers, writers to trainers — anyone involved in the Australian bar industry.

The Most Influential List is based on your votes – we want you to tell us who you think has most influenced the bar industry in your eyes over the last two years. Past winners have been influential Melbourne operator Vernon Chalker in 2009, Merivale’s Justin Hemmes in 2011, and Jason Scott and Anton Forte shared the honour in 2013.
