Top 100 World Class Bartenders in the U.S.!

By Shayleigh Ward posted 02-05-2019 11:12


USBG World Class Sponsored by DIAGEO is scouring the nation to find the 2019 U.S. World Class Bartender of the year!

Over the last few months, hundreds of bartenders from across the nation applied for a chance to earn this prestigious title and each was challenged to create an honest and innovative cocktail that was representative of themselves, their bar and their community.

All submissions have been evaluated anonymously by our panel of judges from the World Class Collective. From hundreds of submissions, we’ve selected the Top 100 to move on to the Round Two Challenge. During this phase, each cocktail is recreated and evaluated on craft, flavor, and creative use of the DIAGEO Spirit. Once Round Two is complete, we will have our Top 50 Regional Finalists who will move on to compete at the USBG Regional Conferences taking place this spring. Only ONE will move on to World Class Global Finals this September in Glasgow, Scotland!
