Mixing drinks is no joke, and for many it becomes a serious career that can take you around the world: Fifty bartenders from forty four countries around the world boarded a cruise ship in France to claim the title of World Class Bartender of the Year 2013.
In the past the event has taken place around the world from London to Rio, but this year’s honor went to Europe also illustrating the importance of the cocktail culture in Europe. Figures have shown that consumer spending on Luxury goods in Europe is higher than any other region globally.
The bartenders that hailed from all points of the world shook spun and mixed their hearts out in front of a panel of industry judges. The winner however was from Spain, his name is Davis Rios and he now has the bragging title of the World’s Best Bartender who was lucky enough to win in Europe, his home turf.
