On the 27:th of January Bacardi Legacy Nordic took place in Copenhagen. Three contestants from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark competed for a place in BACARDÍ Legacy Global Cocktail Competition. The final will take place in Sydney, Australia 1-3 May 2015. The BACARDÍ Legacy Cocktail Competition is not just looking to crown the best drink or bartender of the year; it is looking to find the next Legacy Cocktail.

MOSCOW, 8 May 2014 – The BACARDÍ Legacy Global Cocktail Competition 2014 was won by Tom Walker’s drink, Maid in Cuba. Tom created a cocktail inspired by the American ’maid’ style of drink and triumphed over 26 other original creations from some of the world’s finest mixologists in a stunning final held at the Petrovsky Palace, Moscow.

Winning the prestigious BACARDÍ Legacy Global Cocktail Competition represents a life-changing achievement for a bartender. Tom will see Maid in Cuba – BACARDÍ Superior rum, fresh mint and cucumber with sweet and sour mix topped with soda and absinthe spritz – hailed as a new classic, worthy of joining the ranks of iconic cocktails inspired by BACARDÍ rum.
