The Diplomático World Tournament is back, and once again, Diplomático Rum is looking for the best bartender in the world. This international cocktail competition will feature talented bartenders from more than 40 countries around the world. And in addition to displaying creativity, expertise and skills behind the bar, contestants will be evaluated for charisma, elegance and passion. Think you have what it takes?

Entries for the 3rd Annual Diplomático World Tournament are open now. To apply, working bartenders must create an original cocktail and submit a 30-second to one-minute homemade video introducing themselves and the inspiration behind their drink. The deadline is September 30th.

Selected contestants from the online submissions will compete in local competitions in New York, Miami, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Austin. Winners will then move on to participate in a USA Final that will be held in Las Vegas. Bartenders who make it through the Vegas round will travel to Venezuela for the semi-finals, as they compete to earn their way to the World Final in London.

The winner of the Diplomático World Tournament will be awarded the prestigious title of “World’s Best Bartender,” and receive $10,000 along with the opportunity to travel the world as a Diplomático ambassador.

Enter here, and good luck!
