Stoli The Vodka presents The Bartender Competition, an epic battle of style, skill and entertainment behind the bar.
Seven of Guam's top, seasoned bartenders will compete center stage at The Globe on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, for prizes and the prestigious title of grand champion.
The Bartender Competition is an intense, two-part challenge where competitors juggle bottles and barware in a display of flaring abilities. It also tests the bartenders’ creativity and expertise where they must craft their own signature drinks.
Bartenders also are vying for the title of Social Media Sensation. The category will be judged by the most shares of contestant bio videos featured on the Island Wines & Spirits Facebook page.
This year’s grand champion will earn a trophy, $1,000 prize and bragging rights for the year while the second-place winner collects $500 and a trophy.
Among the seven competing bartenders, several are returning challengers while others are new to the stage. Competition is expected to be fierce as two-time champ Jun Navarro returns to three-peat on his home turf.
