Jose Maria Robertson, Portugal
Cinco Lounge, Lisbon
Walking into Cinco Lounge in 2009, looking for a summer job, Jose Maria was hired, and he’s stayed and flourished there ever since. Jose trained and studied intensively for the Country Final and now Jose says he’s “looking forward to participating in the competition of the elite bartenders of the world, and hopefully winning”. That’s it Jose, you tell it as it is! Let’s see if he does indeed walk away with the prize.
