Sustainable cocktail creations by 10 Malaysian bartenders have been chosen to represent the country at a global competition run by cognac producers Hennessy.
The third installment of the annual HennessyMyWay challenge tasked bartenders globally to create and submit their own vision of a sustainable cocktail using any Hennessy cognac.
The Top 10 Malaysia winners of the HennessyMyWay Sustainable Cocktail challenge include Klang Valley based bartenders Arsenio Mariano (from Moon Bar), Avai Saravanan (Wetdeck – Woobar, W KL), Joshen Chew ([email protected]), Loo Hong Xiang (61Monarchy), Mike Fan (Bartailor), Raz Ng (Gekko Dining), and Sebastian Jeremy (DC Restaurant).
Also listed are two bartenders from Penang bar Backdoor Bodega, Rolend Ten and Thanesh Joel, and one from Johor – Chloe Tan (Cabinet 8 by JWC)
“We are ecstatic to see the bartenders get creative and rise to the occasion given that this year’s challenge of creating a sustainable cocktail is still a fairly new concept in this space. We feel bartenders have also done an exceptional job in showcasing the many different ways Hennessy can be enjoyed,” says Thomas Bouleuc, Managing Director of Moët Hennessy Diageo Malaysia & Singapore.
“With each passing year, we are more impressed with the amazing talent pool across Malaysia. Every bartender has taken their own unique approach to the challenge which is why we are looking forward to bringing these sustainable cocktails to our consumers as part of the upcoming ‘Hennessy Cocktail Trail’,” Bouleuc went on to say.
The Malaysia-based entries were narrowed down into the Top 10 cocktails. Each bartender is awarded a cash prize of 200 EUROS for their win. In addition, they will also receive a limited edition Hennessy V.S.O.P by Liu Wei, an official Hennessy NBA Jersey and a Hennessy Mixology Kit.
In further support of the winners, Hennessy will soon rollout a ‘cocktail trail’ promotion showcasing the Top 10 bartenders and their winning cocktails at participating bars. Cocktail enthusiasts can take delight in being among the first to savour these exclusive, winning Hennessy sustainable cocktails soon. Watch this space for more details.
