Rio de Janeiro is one locale that’s hard to top, but with the announcement of the location for the World Class Global Final, Diageo Reserve has done just that. Last year, the competition made its way onto the sunny beaches of Rio and this year World Class will travel to Nice, Monte Carlo, St. Tropez, Ibiza, and Barcelona. Yes, that’s right, the global final will take place in various cities along the Mediterranean Sea. Talk about amazing.
This year’s competition will take place on board the Azamara Journey cruise ship from July 4th to July 9th and will consist of various evening events, conversations, and cocktail challenges that will highlight the skills of the bartending elite.
“The WORLD CLASS Global Final is a landmark event in the luxury industry which has become an internationally recognized platform and mark of distinction for mixology,” said Rudy Paoli, Managing Director Diageo Reserve. “WORLD CLASS elevates the craft of the bartender, discovers new talent and previews the latest trends and must-have fine drinking experiences to the world. Given the strong growth of the Diageo Reserve business within Europe, the Mediterranean was a clear choice for the 2013 Global Final.”
