Bacardi has selected the Top 30 successful bartenders in the 2018/19 Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition in Australia.

After another record year of entries, Bacardi Brand Ambassadors, Loy Catada, Georgie Mann and Peter Hollands, have chosen the thirty best Bacardi cocktails that they believe have potential to become a Legacy.

Without knowing which bartender was the creator, the judges had a challenging deliberation to face. These hopeful bartenders are now one step closer to representing Australia in 2019’s BACARDÍ Legacy Global Final in Amsterdam.

Bacardi Brand Ambassador, Loy Catada was impressed with not only the quantity but quality of the entries saying, “The selection of the top 30 ultimately came down to well thought-out recipes and an obvious passion behind the drinks; we could certainly have the next Global Legacy cocktail come out of Australia.”

The Top 30 must now submit a video entry of themselves presenting their original Legacy cocktail at their hometown bar. This will be viewed and judged alongside the taste test conducted by the Brand Ambassadors where each of the Top 30 cocktails will be evaluated to then whittled down to the country’s Top 8.
