RUM FRONTIERS BARTENDING COMPETITION 2017 – NATIONAL FINALadminmp
Firstly, we would like to thank all of the bartenders who entered the competition and the bar managers and owners who supported them to do so. We had over 40 entries and the caliber of the submissions was truly exceptional.
We sought the input of 8 independent judges from the industry to select our finalists. However, after much debate, we simply couldn’t get the number down to 10. Thus, Lighthouse Group Indochina and Flor De Cana have decided to make an exception for this year’s competition selecting 12 Finalists.
The twelve bartenders who will be competing in the National Final are:
- Elia Marchetti – 69 Gallery, Ha Noi
- Raffaele Chinea – Skylight, Nha Trang
- Ho Anh Tuan – WanderLust Bar, Da Nang
- Le Nguyen Phuc – My House Bar, HCMC
- Tran The Phung – Sorae Sushi Sake Lounge, HCMC
- Trinh Tien Phat – Stoker Woodfired Grill & Bar, HCMC
- Truong Quang Hung – Xu Restaurant Lounge, HCMC
- Dinh Thep – Layla Eatery & Bar, HCMC
- Truong Hai Trieu – Vesper Gourmet Lounge, HCMC
- Le Minh Quang – Sorae Sushi Sake Lounge, HCMC

The 2017 National Final will be held at GRAIN COOKING STUDIO on Thursday, 12th October 2017.
CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK IN THE NATIONAL FINAL!!!
