World Class Burst 2

Giacomo leads Iberia Burst 2

Burst 2 has been launched in Spain and Portugal with over 400 bartenders trained during the period. Check out this great video of events created across the peninsula to mark the launch – with Global Winner 2013 David Rios, 2014 Spain Winner Giacomo Giannotti and 2011 Spain Winner Alberto Pizarro. In total 12 regions of Iberia were visited over the course of three weeks, taking in over 10,000 km with 2,000 mini cocktails served. The sessions also included Iberia’s Celebration Academy, sharing messages with bartenders around responsible drinking. Additional thanks for their involvement in the training go to Jon Sáez, Javier Reynoso, Miriam Izquierdo, Jordi Bernedo, Diego Pinza, Pieter de Vidts, Christian Jimenez, Enrique Cuevas, Tiago Rodrigues and Jorge Pineda.
