Helping to make this industry the high profile one it is, this event is not only about developing meaningful relations with a large number of decision makers but it will also seek to find the best of the best during the skills competitions.
The Irish Cocktail Championships are the best opportunity in Ireland for bartenders to demonstrate their cocktail making skills and it is the only competition that gives the winner a chance to compete at the World Cocktail Championships which will take place in Tokyo next year.
According to Declan Byrne of the Bartenders Association, “The Bartenders Association of Ireland are delighted to exhibit at Food & Bev Live 2016 and have been supporting the event since its inception in 2012. We will be organising the National Cocktail Competition, sponsored by Edward Dillon & Co. Ltd. and the venue at Citywest provides our members and competitors with an easy to reach location from wherever they’re travelling from in the country.”
