WORLD CLASS WEEK: FRIDAY ROUND-UP

The last day of World Class has sadly arrived and the final challenge took place on the terrace of Old Billingsgate overlooking the Thames, with stunning views of Tower Bridge. This challenge was the competitors’ chance to show off their signature style for all of the judges. Claudio from Italy created a fruity and complex punch to share with his friends, Charles Joly from the USA put on a show with a treasure chest full of smoke, and Peter from Singapore made a delicious creamy, cinnamon creation whilst wearing a dressing gown!

AND THE WORLD CLASS BARTENDER OF THE YEAR 2014 IS… CHARLES JOLY FROM THE USA! Congratulations!
