Bartender of the Year 2019

Sponsored by BACARDÍ & De Kuyper

This is the toughest test of bartending ability out there. You don’t need to social media anything. You don’t have to make a video to promote your drinks. It’s just you and the hardest bartending exam going around. Do you think you have what it takes?Taking place over two days during Sydney Bar Week, 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.

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 — and register online before May 31.
