What is World Class?

World Class is a global bartender and education platform, created to heighten the craft of bartending and help people think about drinks in the same way they do about food. Every year, winners of the World Class Bartender of the Year competitions from 60 countries compete in the global World Class final, an epic week that culminates with the announcement of the Global World Class Bartender of the Year. Canadian Kaitlyn Stewart won the competition in 2017 and Calgary's Jeff Savage placed second in 2019. The 2021 competition will be held in July in Madrid, Spain.
