BACARDÍ Legacy Announce the Three Most Promising Bartenders

(L-R): Vini Wang, Zachary Mynott and James Irvine

BACARDÍ Legacy Global Cocktail Competition has announced the Three Most Promising bartenders who will be progressing to the National Final in Australia in February next year.

James Irvine (The Swillhouse Group), Vini Wang (Hains & Co) and Zachary Mynott (Canvas Club) are all vying for the BACARDÍ Legacy title and one will have the opportunity to represent Australia on the global stage in Mexico City 2018.

“The next step for these aspiring bartenders is to promote their cocktail throughout Australia and the world, getting as many people to taste, hear about and list their drink, proving it could become the next cocktail to last the test of time.” says Loy Catada who, along with fellow BACARDÍ Brand Ambassadors, Peter Hollands and Andy Wren, will personally mentor these three competitors on their pursuit for a spot in Mexico City.

In preparation for the road ahead, the top 3 will be hosted in Sydney on 27th November at the Legacy Summit Day. Each bartender will have access to the BACARDÍ’s digital, PR and social media team as well as inside tips from previous Legacy finalists.
