World Class Global Final 2016

World Class Bartender of the Year Global Final was this year held in the glamorous US city of Miami.

A climax to regional competitions which take place all around the world the final brings together a wealth of talented bartenders to compete for the coveted World Class Title. I never cease to be amazed by the creativity and inventiveness of today’s new generation of bartenders who manage to show ‘an old hand’ a trick or two every year.

This years competition was won by a lady for the first time, Jennifer Le Nechet. The French bartender, usually found crafting drinks and charming customers behind the bar at Café Moderne in Paris wowed the judges by creating a spectacular range of vibrant drinks at her Steampunk themed pop-up bar.
