TORONTO, June 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Fifty countries, 15,000 bartenders, 100,000 cocktails. The quest for the world's greatest bartender is underway and on Monday, June 10th, ten Canadian finalists will vie for the chance to represent their country for the first-time ever.
From Vancouver to Halifax, Canadian bartenders will showcase their talent during three rigorous challenges designed by the largest and most prestigious cocktail education program in the world, Diageo World Class. Star-struck by the hosts and judges, Canada's finalists will have to control their nerves as they perform in front of two global cocktail legends, Steve Olson and Tony Abou-Ganim who have elevated the craft of bartending and paved the way for this generation of bartenders.
This is the first year Canada has been included in Diageo World Class since its inception in 2009 demonstrating the explosive growth of Canada's cocktail culture. The winner of Canada's World Class Bartender of the Year will have the opportunity to represent Canada on the global stage and showcase Canada's mixology talent to the rest of the world aboard a cruise ship in Monaco sailing to Nice in July.
