In 1862 Don Facundo Bacardi Masso invented a revolutionary style of rum: BACARDÍ Carta Blanca, and inspired the world’s greatest bartenders to create a whole new genre of light refreshing cocktails such as the BACARDÍ Daiquirí, BACARDÍ Mojito and BACARDÍ Cuba Libre; drinks that can be found in bars the world over today.
The BACARDÍ Legacy Global Cocktail Competition was founded in 2008 to challenge the great bartenders of the modern era to create a cocktail that will stand the test of time, become their signature drink and be remembered long into the future. It is now the world’s largest single brand cocktail competition, attracting thousands of entries from over 40 countries around the world. In its ninth year, the competition held its prestigious global final in Berlin in May 2017.
The national winners travelled to Berlin from across the globe to participate in an incredible week-long schedule of events, rubbing shoulders with some of the true legends of the bartending world. There, they presented their unique cocktail creations to be judged by a panel of highly respected mixologists and spirits experts looking for a cocktail that offers perfectly balanced ingredients, a timeless taste and preserves the spirit of the classic style of BACARDÍ rum. Halifax’s Matt Boyle was there representing Canada with his cocktail The Ocho Watchman.
