Bacardi Lion has announced the five Australian finalists for the Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition 2015.

Australia's ‘Five Most Promising’ cocktail entries are:

  • Christian Blair from Rockpool Bar and Grill, Sydney, NSW with The Diplomat;
  • James Connelly from The Angels Cut, Perth, WA with The Cantineros Kiss;
  • Joe Sinagra from Bobeche, Perth, WA with Heart of the Nation;
  • Sarah Fulford from Lily Blacks, Melbourne, VIC with Giselle; and
  • Alissa Gabriel from The Press Club, Brisbane, QLD with Bouteiller.

Bacardi Legacy has quickly established itself as one of the most important cocktail competitions in the world. It is judged by an unrivalled panel of industry experts, renowned for their distinguished palates and years of bartending experience.

Over the next three months, these talented five will partner with Bacardi to market and promote their cocktail with a budget of $2,000. They will then converge in Melbourne for the National Final, resulting in the Australian Bacardi Legacy winner being announced to compete against the very best from around the world.

This year the Global Finals will be held in Sydney, an acknowledgement of Australia’s increasingly influential cocktail and bar scene.
