On Monday 28th January, 20 bartenders form all around Bali including two from AYANA competed in the 2013 DIAGEO Reserve
World Class Challenge. Here are some highlights from the event:
As part of the event, Rock Bar hosted Singaporean-based Japanese bartender Akihiro Eguchi. After judging 20 contestants from Bali' s most high-profile bars in the first round of the Bali competition held at AYANA, Akihiro Eguchi, who is a previous winner of the DIAGEO Reserve World Class Challenge, got behind the bar at Rock Bar to serve up his signature 'Sun Flower' consisting of Ketel One Vodka, passionfruit, fresh grapefruit juice, Absinth and sugar syrup. It sure made the sun come out here!
It was a pretty tense moment for the bartenders. In this photo, one contestant gives a classic cocktail a retro-chic, vodka-based twist.
Congratulations to our Beverage Manager D'Agisna Ramdhani (above left) who won 3rd place with his 'Burnt Orange Chocopolitan' consisting of KetelOne Vodka 40 ml, Creme de Cacao White 20 ml, Burnt Orange infused Tripple Sec 20 ml, Egg white 10 ml, Kintamani Orange Jelly 20 ml. Well done, D'Agisna! Watch out for his creation to hit the Rock Bar and Martini Bar menus soon.
