By January 26, 2019Connecticut, Top News

The United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) New Haven chapter hosted an educational event for hopeful candidates of the USBG World Class bartending competition, sponsored by Diageo, at Highland Brass Co. in Waterbury on December 17. Anthony DeSerio, Account Consultant, Diageo Reserve, led the training, which included tips on creating prizewinning cocktails and preparation for the competition exam. Participants tasted several cocktails prepared by DeSerio that demonstrated variations in flavor notes and other attributes using selections from within the Diageo Reserve spirits portfolio. USBG World Class, sponsored by Diageo, is part of an internationally recognized competition that “elevates the craft of the bartender and builds careers,” culminating in an annual landmark week of competition where the Global Bartender of the Year is selected from finalists.
