Halifax Bartender Crowned Canada's First-Ever Diageo World Class Canada Bartender Of The Year

Canada to be represented on the global stage for the first time

TORONTO, June 19, 2013 /CNW/ - It was a race to the finish with less than one point separating Jenner Cormier from Halifax, NS and Shane Mulvany from Toronto, ON, but the Maritimes prevailed and Jenner took home the coveted crown, as the first-ever Diageo World Class Canada Bartender of the Year.  In third place, representing Canada's West Coast was Grant Sceney from Vancouver, making the World Class winner's circle a national coast-to-coast celebration.

On Monday, June 10 th, Jenner and nine other Canadian competitors were judged on their bartending knowledge, skills and showmanship behind the bar by two legends in the cocktail industry, Steve Olson and Tony Abou-Ganim, along with last year's World Class USA winner Ricky Gomez and Canadian author and journalist, Jacob Richler.

Set to leave an indelible mark in the world of fine drinking, Jenner was named Canada's best bartender for his World Class technique, poise, balanced cocktails and bartending charm; but Jenner truly impressed the judges with his Mad Hatter presentation of the exquisite Zacapa® Rum 23, during a bottle serve challenge that was inspired by the silver screen and earned Jenner the highest points ever awarded for this category from all four judges.

"Winning the first-ever Diageo World Class Canada title and being recognized by the world's most prestigious mixology competition is an incredible honour," said Jenner Cormier.  "The level of competition and cocktail mastery from my Canadian peers is truly second to none, and I was honoured and inspired to compete and learn alongside bartenders that are as passionate about their craft as I am."
