Cuban Bartenders Association marks 100th anniversary (+Photos)

Havana, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) The Association of Cuban Bartenders (ACC) is celebrating its 100th anniversary on Thursday with two important international awards won by bartenders in Venice and Athens, its president, Eddie Naranjo, informed.

Naranjo told Prensa Latina that Ana Carla Hernandez, a bartender at the Habana Libre Tryp Hotel, was the international winner of the Lady Drink 2024 Cocktail, held in Venice, Italy.

Meanwhile, Kenia Borges, bartender of the Melia Internacional Hotel in Varadero, won the first edition of the International BarLady Cocktail Championship among competitors from 16 countries.

Naranjo explained that the ACC was the only Association of Latin American bartenders invited to participate in the BarLady competition and stated that winning this award would allow them to attract the second edition of this world competition to Cuba in 2025.

He added that one of the ACC’s objectives is to increase the training of all bartenders, raise their preparation and professionalism, and increase the knowledge the bartenders can offer from the bar to the customer.

The ACC president pointed out that the Association has 1,582 members distributed in 19 grassroots organizations nationwide, but still needs to grow.
