Bacardi Legacy 2018 entries open

13 September, 2017

The Bacardi Legacy UK heats are open for registration across the country ahead of the 10th global final in Mexico City in 2018.

Bartenders will compete in regional heats across the UK to qualify for the national finals in Amsterdam in November, with the UK champion going on to the global finals next year.

Metinee Kongsrivlai, UK brand ambassador for Bacardi said: “We’re very excited to seeing what this year’s competition brings to the table.

“There have been some truly outstanding cocktails produced through Legacy and we are in no doubt that this year will be any different.

“Being the tenth anniversary makes it that little bit more special so we hope that bartenders from all corners of the UK are inspired to enter.”

Kongsrivilai and Ian Burrell, global rum ambassador hosted a series of workshops across the UK to kick start this year’s competition and encourage entries.

Each workshop looked at the history of rum classics, tips on how to succeed in the competition and host tasting opportunities of different rums.
