On February 18,2017, Bacardi-Martini Philippines, in cooperation with Pinoytender Management
Consultancy, will stage the Bacardi U-Mix Bartending Challenge , a bartending competition for students
that focuses on the “talking bartender” and that ultimate cocktail. This is the culminating activity of the
Bacardi University program, which is now on its 4 th year.
In our beverage industry we have always strived in developing the competence of our bartenders in
crafting the best drink in town. Through seminars and training that is being conducted by our global
ambassadors, we are able to monitor the interest and progress of our bartenders.
Last 2016, we have decided to tap our future industry players which are the students.
Given the right
training, they will be able to apply not only the theories but the techniques and trends that were shared
by our South East Asian Brand Ambassador Mitchell Kai Lum.
As the years have passed, this community has grown. The event includes a distinguished panel of judges
that will determine this year’s champion.
In a nutshell the mechanics of the competition is for the contestant to make an original drink in 5
minutes while talking about it. Communication is one of the skills we want to nurture in this competition
for we believe that a world class bartender should express himself articulately and present himself
Bacardi U Mix promises to be an exciting and interesting competition to find out who are the future
bartenders of this country.
Show starts at 1pm and will be held at the Hive Hotel and Convention Place which is located at #68
Scout Tuazon corner Scout Madrinian Street, South Triangle, Quezon City. The champion will receive a
cash prize, plus a trophy, gift packs and a certificate courtesy of our Major Sponsor Bev Tools.
Come and join us.
