The best bartenders are great hosts, and a big part of being a good host is being a knowledgeable host. Whomever ends up winning the 2017 Bartender of the Year sponsored by BACARDÍ and De Kuyper, one thing’s for sure — they’ll be a knowledgeable bartender.
So how good is your knowledge? Each month in the print issue of Australian Bartender from now until August we’ll be running a brief quiz to get you thinking about the Bartender of the Year and prepping you for the toughest bartending exam in the country.
And, thanks to the dark magic that is the internet, you can take the first quiz below to see how you’ll fare.
Anyone working in a bar can enter to take a crack at the biggest crown of them all. If you’ve got any questions, email competition organiser Sam Bygrave on firstname.lastname@example.org — and register online before May 31!
