Great Britain's Jamie Jones of No Fixed Abode has arrived in Mexico and is currently competing with the best bartenders in the world to be crowned Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year 2017.

Jamie who thought off tough competition to be named British champion and reach the finals in Mexico will take on fifty-four competitors at the pinnacle of their trade at the world’s biggest bartending competition. Together they will face the toughest of challenges, from making show-stopping creations that will shape the future of cocktail culture to shaking off their competition in the knockout Lucha Libre cocktail challenge.

Jamie has arrived in Mexico armed with luxury ingredients including Johnnie Walker, Cîroc, Ketel One vodka, Tanqueray No. TEN, Zacapa, Bulleit, Don Julio, and a fine collection of single malts, ready to create what he hopes is a stand-out cocktail. Expect to see limes flying and mixology like never before as the race begins to have Great Britain’s best bartender take the crown of the industry and become the WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year!

Johanna Dalley, World Class Director, said: “This is the biggest and best bartending competition in the world and biggest World Class competition yet. We are delighted to welcome the world’s best bartenders as they compete for the title of World Class Bartender of the Year.

“The cocktail revolution is booming and these bartenders are leading the way. Expect to see the pinnacle of bartending creations and new trends which will set the cocktail agenda for months and years to come.”
