EVANS OTIENO CROWNED BEST MIXOLOGIST AT COCKTAIL COMPETITION
Diageo World Class Kenya partnered with luxury hotel Villa Rosa Kempinski to host the first ever Cocktail competition between two of the finest mixologists in the country; Evans Otieno and Joshua Wesonga.
The cocktail competition offered a variety of curated experiences that celebrate the craft of bartending and provided consumers with amazing quality cocktails, while delivering a luxury consumption experience.
The mixologists battled it out in a quest to make the best whisky, gin and rum cocktail. Evans Otieno was crowned the best mixologist and got his cocktail menu featured on the Kempinski Balcony Bar.
“World Class is on a mission to improve the cocktail culture by training up bartenders and enabling them to hone their craft. The skills they learn through the World Class training programme make them more competitive, resulting in higher incomes and provide a higher quality experience for the customer.
A higher number of trained bartenders will enable the hospitality industry to diversify and create more signature drinks with each hotel looking to make its own mark on the industry.” said Diageo East Africa Senior Brand Ambassador Douglas Duncanson.
