World Class Bartender: Bayu Wiseso, Ku De Ta Bali, Indonesia

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

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


And some of those drinks were made by

Bayu Wiseso, Indonesia

Bayu Wiseso, Ku De Ta Bali, Indonesia

Bayu Wiseso has been a bartender for the past ten years. He primarily learned the craft from his mentor, Bruce Bartholomew, bar manager at the famed Ku De Ta in Bali, who always pushes him to innovate and encourages an exceptional level of personality and creativity. Bayu was a WORLD CLASS Finalist in 2012 and hopes to one day own his own bar. He credits the WORLD CLASS programme with giving him the freedom to use creativity in crafting cocktails.

And here’s one of the cocktails he wowed us with during the St. Tropez Market Challenge
