Diageo and Shore Solutions have partnered to create the Diageo World Class Yachting Cocktail Competition at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show this month.

Diageo has organized the World Class Cocktail Championships for six years. This year, Diageo has introduced a yachting category. Thirty yachts are slated to compete. The winner earns a place among 60 mixologists from around the world for the 2015 World Class finals to be held in Cape Town.

“Combining the sophistication of yachting and the refined art of cocktail making, the competition will play host to unparalleled creativity and craftsmanship,” said Matteo Fantacchiotti, global commercial director for Diageo Reserve.

“Luxury yachts require seven star service and the skills of the interior crew often go unrecognized outside the industry,” said Andrew Roch, managing director of Shore Solutions UK. “We have been training crew in the art of mixology for over 10 years, with the aim of impressing an increasingly discerning cocktail drinker. This competition provides the opportunity for the most talented bartenders in the yachting world to showcase their skills, inspired by the Caribbean backdrop; it will be interesting to see how they fare with the challenges.”

Upon their arrival in Antigua in early December, bartenders will attend cocktail seminars. Over the course of the week-long competition, a series of on-board challenges will inspire participants to create premium serves, using the world’s finest spirits. The Yachting World Class final takes place on Dec. 11.
