The winner will take home $500 in prize money, while the runner up will receive a bottle of Ketel One and Ciroc, and third place will get a bottle of Ketel One.
The ten finalists are – Simon Hough from Luxe, Phil Weber from Defectors, Mike de Vos from Cheeky Sparrow, Mitch Keane from Ezra Pound, Caitlyn Selkirk from Boulevard, Timmy Laferla from Malt Supper Club, Josh Best from The Aviary, Mariusz Ag from Must Wine Bar, Nicholas Lee from Purl Bar and Drew Cameron from Air Nightclub.
