At the finals of Diageo Reserve Brand’s World Class Bartender Competition this year, I witnessed some incredible drinks being made.

Clark Jiménez Alvarado is currently a bartender at 8vo Rooftop in Costa Rica. Following his start at the Bartenders School and the Argentina School of Sommeliers, Clark has worked hard taking inspiration from fellow bartenders to learn more and become better every day.  He endeavors to provide guests a unique and special service, and loves to see the joy and gratitude of a client. Becoming a WORLD CLASS finalist has been a turning point in his life, and an opportunity to learn from many other talented bartenders.

gaz sez:  Clark is by no means the first to point out that becoming a WORLD CLASS finalist has changed his life, and one of the very best things about the competition is the exchange of knowledge that goes on between the competitors.  It’s a World Class attitude.
