The top bartenders hailing from these countries would be having a final battle in Moscow and the best out of them will win the title of Beluga Signature Global Ambassador 2020.
May The Best Bartender Win
The winner would also be display their winning cocktail at prestigious events like Bar Convent Berlin, Tales of the Cocktails, Bar Convent Brazil along with promoting the program next year. The winning bartender will also bag a one week internship in one of the 50 world’s best bars. “As the current Global Champion and someone who went through this outstanding experience I encourage everyone to enter,” says Alessandro Venturi from Hotel La Griffe, Rome who was the winner last year and the current Beluga Signature 2019 Ambassador. “Not only is it a great challenge that taught me so much and let me grow in my career, but the prize is also truly amazing: on top of all the travels and industry happenings I spent a week in Singapore as an intern in the innovative ‘Operation Dagger’ (#23 in the 50 World’s Best Bars ranking).”
“Last year’s feedback was overwhelmingly positive, so we decided to go deeper in the topic,” says Philip Duff, Beluga Signature Educational Director. “The hospitality industry is centered on the guest whose satisfaction is a main marker of success in a bartender’s career. Last year the seminars were about building a profitable bar, reading your guests and creating cutting-edge flavors using avant-garde techniques. This year we will talk about consistency of the luxury service, creating a memorable experience for your guest and, most importantly, applying your creativity consistently. Needless to say, everyone who gets through the initial shortlisting to attend these private seminars is a winner already!”
