It all takes place at Ramblin’ Rascal Tavern from 10am on Monday 16th September. It’s open to working bartenders across Australia, you’ve just got to turn up and take a crack at the toughest bartending exam going around.
Taking place over two days during Sydney Bar Week (September 14-18 2019), the Bartender of the Year sponsored by BACARDÍ and De Kuyper has got a great prize in store for this year’s champion. Not only will you score national bragging rights as the top bartender in the country, you’ll also go on a bartending trip to remember to visit Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans and receive a wildcard entry into the semi-final round of the next instalment of BACARDÍ Legacy.
Should you win the big title for yourself, you’ll be the 17th bartender to join one of the most exclusive bartending clubs around, the Bartenders of the Year club. Previous winners include last year’s champion, Jenna Hemsworth, Daniel Gregory (2017), Michael Chiem (2016), Lee Potter Cavanagh (2015), Nathan Beasley (2014), and the list goes on.
To get an idea of what’s in store, give the quiz below a go — and we’ll see you at Rascals on Monday.
