The World Class Irish Bartender of the Year was crowned as Andy Ferreira from Cask in County Cork at the Irish Final which took place in Zozimus Bar, Dublin. Andy will go on to represent Ireland in the World Class Global Final 2017 which will take place in Mexico City this coming September.

World Class is the world’s most prestigious and respected mixology programme, committed to celebrate and elevate the craft of bartending. To determine Ireland’s best bartender, some of the industry’s most influential figures joined this year’s judging panel including Roe & Co Ambassador, Peter O’Connor, World Class Luxury Events Manager, Dan Dove, World Class Ireland Winner 2016, Andrew Dickey and celebrity chef and co-host of MasterChef UK, John Torode who took part for the second year running.

Competing alongside Andy were Aidan Mulvaney from An Pucan in Galway and Karim Medhi from The Exchequer, Martin Holec from Delahunt, Alan Moore from Lemuel’s and Mihai Pop from Chelsea Drugstore. All six finalists competed head-to-head in a series of complex challenges testing them on all aspects of the craft of bartending where they had to demonstrate skill, passion, innovation, creativity and ambition. And all in front of a live audience.

On being announced as the World Class Irish Bartender of the Year 2017 Andy commented; “It’s such a huge honour to get to represent Ireland at the World Class Global Finals. We’re a small country, but we are making huge waves on the international scene and I can’t wait to represent the Irish bartending community at the Global Finals.?
