Over the past nine months, the thrill and anticipation built during the WORLD CLASS Whisk(e)y, Gin and Vodka heats, has inspired training events as well as new concepts and ideas in mixology. Since the launch of WORLD CLASS, the very best of Ireland’s bar industry have battled it out through the intensity of the qualifying competitions, leaving three national finalists standing.
Max La Rocca was judged as the most creative and entertaining bartender in Ireland and been crowned with the prestigious title of ” Ireland’s WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year”
Max will advance to the Diageo World Class Global Final 2010 in Athens, Greece this July, where he will flex his mixology might against 30 of the best bartenders from around the world.
Thank you to all the people @ Diageo for the amazing event and to the excellent Judging Panel:
Angust Winchester, Justin Smyth, Tom Doorley, Nick Munier
