This is The Nation’s Best Bartender


The best bartender in the nation has been named after winning the Barcardi Legacy Australia Cocktail Competition.

James Irvine from The Swillhouse Group won the competition with his Bocado cocktail last month.

Three finalists competed at Darlinghurst’s Eternity Playhouse in front of around 150 people and 3 judges with Irvine emerging victorious.

His cocktail was judged by its ingredients, techniques and the expertise with which he marketed it to the public.  See more at
