The eventual winner of the final, which aims to find the most-skilled Pilsner Urquell bartender in the UK, will compete in the international awards held in Prague later this year.
Laura Edwards, Director of Trade Marketing at Miller Brands, who run the awards, said: “Pilsner Urquell delivers uncompromised quality in every pint. Our Master Bartender programme aims to ensure consumers enjoy Pilsner Urquell at its best.”
This year 1,700 bartenders entered the contest. The final 10 will be interviewed by a panel of industry experts and judged on their practical bar skills.
“We’ve never had so many entrants from UK bartenders, and the standard this year is higher than ever,” added Edwards. “We’re excited to see what the ten finalists can do!”
