Here’s all the winner photos from the 18th annual Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards

The Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards is done for another year. 2018 was the 18th instalment of what is the Oscars of the bar industry, and some 40-odd awards were handed out on the evening recognising the outstanding achievements of the country’s best bars, bar operators, and bartenders.

And in our Bartender of the Year sponsored BACARDI & De Kuyper this year, we had for the first time three women in the Top 8 and two women in the Top 3, with the remarkable talents of Jenna Hemsworth from Sydney’s Restaurant Hubert taking out the top prize — the first woman to do so in the competition’s history.

It was a long time coming, and there’s no doubt that Hemsworth is a worthy and deserved member of the exclusive club that is the Bartenders of the Year.

Take a look below at all the winners from the evening.

Bartender of the Year, Jenna Hemsworth.
